compute the variable of the discriminate and give the number of real solutions of the quadratic equation

-3x^2-5x-6=0

Jun 22nd, 2015

Discriminant = b^2 -4ac = 25 - 4* -3 * -6 = 25 + 72 = 97 

Discriminant >0 , So number of real solutions = 2

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

Please ignore the above.

Discriminant = b^2 -4ac = 25 - 4* -3 * -6 = 25  - 72 = -47

Discriminant <0 , So number of real solutions = 0
