Discriminants and Quadratic Equations

The standard quadratic equation is given as: ax^2 + bx + c = 0 , where a, b, and c are real numbers and a > 0. The quadratic formula can be used to solve for all solutions of any quadratic equation. If a graph of the quadratic equation crosses the x axis, it has two real number solutions. We use the discriminant of b^2 - 4ac,
