If mc028-1.jpg is the only x-intercept of the graph of a quadratic equation, which statement best describes the discriminant of the equation?
The discriminant is zero In a quadratic equation , we use the quadratic formula to find the solutions x = (-b ± √(b2 - 4ac)) / 2a  where a, b, and c are coefficients of the equation ax2 + bx + c = 0  Since x=6 is the only x-intercept, the equation would be (x - 6)(x - 6) = 0  Expanding this out, we get x2 - 12x + 36 = 0  In this equation, a = 1b = -12c = 36 Now the discriminant is the square-root part of the formula: b2 - 4ac  Now plug in the values of a,b, and c into the discriminant. (-12)2 - 4(1)(36) = 144 - 144 = 0 This number is under the square-root.  The square-root of 0 is 0.  ...
