    got what's called the "discriminant" \[\Large b^2 - 4ac\] In the quadratic formula, this expression would be inside a square root sign

    So... this is really what gives the quadratic expression its "flavour" if you will. When something is inside a square root sign, there's a case when it simply will not exist (in reals) What sort of numbers DON'T have square roots?

    recall that "real numbers" are precicely the numbers whose square is nonnegative

    i have never heard \(b^2-4ac\) called the "radicand" before on planet earth we usually say "discriminant" although i guess it really is a "radicand" since it sits inside a square root sign

    pretty convinced the question makes no sense standalone, it refers to the quadratic formula |dw:1439052445971:dw|

    Nice handwriting ganeshie :/ How on earth did you do that with the draw tool? Also, equal to zero, fahd? 0 is nonnegative and does have a real square root ^^

    BTW, I know OS is rather slow (sorry guys, just calling it what it is) but it is especially slow on that "new" Microsoft browser, Edge Is that to be expected?

    Btw those extensions are chrome specific, but javascript doesn't bother about browser.. so you don't really need to download chrome just for those extensions..
