Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The discriminant is 31, using the formula ax^2 + bx + c = 0 (2x^2 + 3x + 5 = 0) The simplest form of this equation, step by step  Combine like terms: 2x^2  3x + 5 = 0 Apply the Quadratic Formula: \[b + \sqrt{b^24ac} \over 2a \] \[b\sqrt{b^24ac} \over 2a\] So, in this equation, a = 2, b = 3, c = 5. \[x = 3 + \sqrt{31} \over 4\] and \[3  \sqrt{31} \over 4\]
