Mass of Solar System, Quadratic Formula and Complex Number

What is the total mass in kilograms of our solar system? And what is the equation for the speed of light?

When solving a quadratic equation using the quadratic formula, is it possible for the b to the second power minus 4ac term inside the square root to be negative, thus forcing us to take the square root of a negative number?

In the real world, where might we use imaginary numbers?

What is the total mass in kilograms of our solar system?

(see attached file for diagrams)

The pictures above show different views of the Sun. The first picture shows a solar flare erupting from the Suns surface, the second shows a total eclipse of the sun by the moon allowing the solar corona to be viewed, the third shows a picture obtained by the SOHO spacecraft it shows the solar corona and solar polar plumes, the fourth again shows a solar eclipse and the final picture show a sunspot found on the surface of the Sun.

The Sun is a G2 star, it is the largest body ...
