You do understand that this is not a homework service nor is it a tutorial service. PLease either post some of your own work on this problem or explain what you do not understand about the question.

First, where

Then and k= 14, -18 (rejected)

The thing I'm not sure about is whether there are any other real values of k apart from k=14 that would give at least one repeated root... - Oct 27th 2010, 04:34 AMHallsofIvy
