That is what I did.
You only look at the expression under the radical.
This tells you its signs.
If it is negative then you have imaginaries.
If it is zero then you have one a singal solution to quadradic.
It it is positive then you have two distint solution.
And if the positive term is a perfect square then you have rational solutions.
