Multiple Choice Identify the
choice that best completes the statement or answers the question.



Find the exact solution of the following quadratic equation by using the
Quadratic Formula.


1.

a.  {–12, 5}  c.  {–10, 24}  b.  {–5, 12}  d.  {60, 67} 


2.




Find the value of the discriminant. Then describe the number and type of
roots for the equation.


3.

a.  The discriminant is 244. Because the discriminant is greater than 0 and is not a
perfect square, the roots are real and irrational.  b.  The discriminant is –244. Because the
discriminant is less than 0, the two roots are complex.  c.  The discriminant is
–148. Because the discriminant is less than 0, the two roots are complex.  d.  The discriminant is
196. Because the discriminant is greater than 0 and is a perfect square, the two roots are real and
rational. 


4.

a.  The discriminant is –41. Because the discriminant is less than 0, the two
roots are complex.  b.  The discriminant is –23. Because the
discriminant is less than 0, the two roots are complex.  c.  The discriminant is
23. Because the discriminant is greater than 0 and is a perfect square, the two roots are real and
rational.  d.  The discriminant is 9. Because the discriminant is greater than 0 and is a perfect
square, the two roots are real and rational.
