Part A If we just evaluate the radicand, that is sq root (b^2 - 4*a*c) which equals sq root (-16^2 -4*4*-5)

Got anything on B?

I messed up part A it should be: sq root (-16^2 -(4*9*60))

Looking for something else?

Part B Using Quadratic Formula x = [-b +-sq root (b^2 -4ac)] / 2a a=4 b=8 c =-5 x = [-8 +-sq root (8^2 - 4*4*-5)] / 2*4

Thank you so much

Don't forget for part A the radical is sq root (-16^2 -(4*9*60)) That means you will have a negative square root and so the answers are complex (or imginary)
