I have a quadratic equation;
3x^2 - 2x +3
I am asked to calaculate the discriminate of the quadratic expression
OK this is a learning curve for me which I don't profess to understand!
I have the above and I think the first step is to find the sum of the two numbers 'a' and 'c', so ac = 9. The sum is b
for this quadratic expression, ac = 3 x 3 = 9 and b = -2
I think I now need to find the factors of 9!
I see 1, 3 and 9
The problem I now see is there is no sum of these to make -2, so I am stuck here at this point?
Anyone know what I am doing wrong?
