The easiest way to determine the answer to your question is to evaluate the

For a quadratic in the form:

the

For your example

The

The number of solutions is determined by the value of the

So

**Further explanation:**

The discriminant comes from the formula for quadratic root solutions

and it should be fairly obvious from this to understand why
