Solution

The given equation is \[4 x^2 - 2(k + 1)x + (k + 1) = 0\] where a = 4, b = -2(k+1), c = (k+1)
          As we know that D = b2 - 4ac
          Putting the value of a = 4, b = -2(k+1), c = (k+1)

\[\left\{ - 2(k + 1) \right\}^2 - 4 \times 4 \times (K + 1)\]

\[4(K + 1 )^2 - 16(K + 1)\]

\[(K + 1)\left\{ 4(K + 1) - 16 \right\}\]

\[(K + 1)(4K - 12)\]

\[4(K + 1)(K - 3)\]

         For real and equal roots D = 0

\[4\left( K + 1 \right)\left( K - 3 \right) = 0\]

\[K = - 1 \text { or } k = 3\]

    Therefore, the value of
