#### Question

Write the set of value of k for which the quadratic equations has 2x^{2} + kx − 8 = 0 has real roots.

#### Solution

The given quadric equation is 2x^{2} + kx − 8 = 0 , and roots are real.

Then find the value of *k.*

Here, a = 2 , b = k and, c = -8

As we know that `D =b^2 - 4ac`

Putting the value of a = 2 , b = k and, c = -8

` = (k)^2 - 4 xx 2 xx (-8)`

= `k^2 + 64`

The given equation will have real roots, if D > 0

I.e., k^{2} + 64 > 0 which is true for all real values of k

Therefore, for all real values of k, the given equation has real roots.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
