# What is the discriminant of #3x^2+6x=2#?

##### 1 Answer

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

First, we need to rewrite the equation in standard quadratic form:

The quadratic formula states:

For

The discriminate is the portion of the quadratic equation within the radical:

If the discriminate is:

- Positive, you will get two real solutions

- Zero you get just ONE solution

- Negative you get complex solutions

To find the discriminant for this problem substitute:

Because the discriminate in positive there would be two real solutions for this problem.
