Find the value of the discriminant. Describe the number and type of roots.
4x^2  6x + 2 =0
I tried it at least, and I got 4 for the discriminant... That's all I know, and I don't even know if it's right. So please, help me.. I suck at math

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\(\huge\color{reD}{\rm b^24ac}\) `Discriminant` you can use this to find if the equation is factorable or not if ` b^24ac > 0` then there are 2 real zeros if ` b^24ac = 0` then there is one real root if ` b^24ac < 0` then you will get two complex roots (no xintercept)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, so i did do that, and i got four for the discriminant. Does that mean that the root is 2, and that it is a complex root?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Um.. I think...? I'm very unsure about math. It is not my forte. I just got very confused..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so 4 is greater than 0 right ? 4 is bigger than 0 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2if b^24ac> 0 then how many roots would you have ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes right if you get positive number then you get 2 solutions

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2remember if discriminant = 0 then one solution if discriminant is a negative number then no real solution and if discriminant is positive number then 2 solutions

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohh, that makes sense! I never learned anything about roots. so since its positive, it will have 2 solutions, in other words, 2 roots. correct?
