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