    ▲= b²-4ac =discriminant

    -2 x2-6=40 x

    2x²+40x-6=0

    x²+20x-3=0

    ▲= b²-4ac = 20²-4(-3)= 400+12=412

    x= (-b±√▲)/2a= (-20±√412)/2

    The quadratic formula has the term sqrt(b^2-4ac), for ax^2+bx+c=0. If the term interior the sq. root is damaging, then you incredibly get a complicated answer. so which you in basic terms would desire to discover the equation the place b^2 - 4ac < 0. For A, b^2 - 4ac = -sixteen, so this would desire to be the respond.
