 Question 171708: What type of solution do you get for quadratic equations where D < 0? Give reasons for your answer. Also provide an example of such a quadratic equation and find the solution of the equationAnswer by stanbon(57219)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!What type of solution do you get for quadratic equations where D < 0? It does not have Real Number solutions; it has complex number solutions. ------------------------------- Give reasons for your answer. If b^2 - 4ac < 0 the sqrt is a complex number ---------------------------- Also provide an example of such a quadratic equation and find the solution of the equation x^2 + 5x + 10 = 0 x = [-5 +- sqrt(25-4*10)]/2 x = [-5 +- sqrt(-15)]/2 x = [-5 +-isqrt(15)]/2 ========================== Cheers, Stan H.
