Solve and discuss in R...equation of second degree
following the values of parametric m ,solve and discuss in R the following equations , where x is unknown :
1)x^2+(m-1)x-m=0
2)3x^2-13mx+10m^2=0
3)(m-4)x^2-2(m-l)x+m+1=0

These are all Quadratic Equations. Have you tried the Quadratic Formula?

This is, after all, algebra! You are allowed to replace numbers with letters. Use the quadratic formula with, for the first example, a= 1, b= m-1, c= -m.
