The expression that appears below the radical sign in the quadratic equation is referred to as discriminant. The expression b2 – 4ac, in the argument of the square root is called the discriminant.
If the discriminant is positive, ie., if b2 – 4ac > 0,
then the quadratic equation has two solutions.
If the discriminant is zero, ie., if b2 – 4ac = 0,
then the quadratic equation has one solution.
If the discriminant is negative ie., if b2 – 4ac < 0,
then the quadratic equation has no solutions.
The discriminant value in the polynomial quadratic equation tells you about the number of real roots associated with it.
