    Alright, same way as before a=3, b=-6, and c=3 (-6)^2-4(3)(3)=36-36=0 Okay, the rule with dsicriminants is: If > 0: There are two real roots If = 0: There is one real root If < 0: There are two complex roots

    The main reason it cannot be C is because the equation is a to the power of two meaning at most, it can only have 2 roots.
