Answers to Questions

How to calculate a discriminant?

For a quadratic polynomial, the discriminant named delta is calculated like this:

$$ \Delta = b^2-4ac $$

The fact of knowing the value of the discriminant then solves the equationhref.

If the discriminant is positive (strictly), the equationhref has two solutions:

$$ x_1 = \frac {-b + \sqrt \Delta}{2a} $$

$$ x_2 = \frac {-b - \sqrt \Delta}{2a} $$

If the discriminant is zero, the equationhref has a double root:

$$ x_1=x_2 = -\frac b{2a} $$

If the discriminant is negative (strictly), the equationhref has complex solutions:

$$ \delta^2 = \Delta $$

$$ x_1 = \frac {-b + \delta}{2a} $$

$$ x_2 = \frac {-b - \delta}{2a} $$

For equations of higher degrees, the calculations are much more complicated, but knowledge of the determinants is important.
