Question

Write the condition to be satisfied for which equations ax2 + 2bx + c = 0 and \[b x^2 - 2\sqrt{ac}x + b = 0\] have equal roots.

Solution

The given equations are

 ax2 + 2bx + c = 0  …... (1)

And, \[b x^2 - 2\sqrt{ac}x + b = 0\] …… (2)

roots are equal.

Let D1 and D2 be the discriminants of equation (1) and (2) respectively,

Then,

`D1 = (2b)^2 - 4ac`

= `4b^2 - 4ac`

And  `D_= (-2sqrtac)^2 - 4 xx b xx b `

  ` = 4ac - 4b^2`

Both the given equation will have real roots, if  `D_1 ≥0 " and " D_2 ≥ 0 `

`4b^2 - 4ac ≥ 0`

          `4b^2 ≥ 4ac`

`b^2 ≥ ac`…… (3)

`4ac - 4b^2 ≥ 0`

      `  4ac ≥ 4b^2`

 `ac ≥ b^2` …... (4)

From equations (3) and (4) we get

b2 = ac

Hence, b2 = ac is the condition under which the given equations have equal roots.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
