Write the discriminant of the following quadratic equations:
2x2 - 5x + 3 = 0
We have been given, 2x2 - 5x + 3 = 0
Now we also know that for an equation , the ax2 + bx + c = 0 discriminant is given by the following equation:
D = b2 - 4ac
Now, according to the equation given to us, we have, a = 2, b = -5 and c = 3.
Therefore, the discriminant is given as,
D = (-)2 - 4(2)(3)
= 25 - 24
Therefore, the discriminant of the equation is 1.
