Description :

discriminant of a quadratic equation

The discriminant of the quadratic equation following `ax^2+bx+c=0` is equal to `b^2-4ac`. The notation used for the discriminant is `Delta` (delta), so we have `Delta=b^2-4ac`.

The calculator has a feature which allows the calculation of the discriminant online of quadratic equations. To calculate the discriminant of the equation : `3x^2+4x+3=0`, enter discriminant(`3*x^2+4*x+3=0;x`), the calculator returns the result -20.

Calculate the discriminant of a polynomial allows to determine the number of root of quadratic equation :

  • When the calculation of the discriminant gives a negative number, the equation has no root
  • when the discriminant is zero, the equation has a root, double root
  • when the calculation of the discriminant is a positive number, the equation has two distinct roots.

To find les the roots of an equation, it is possible to use the equation solver.
