### LESSON 9-9 PROBLEM SOLVING THE QUADRATIC FORMULA AND THE DISCRIMINANT ANSWERS

Will it reach a height of 40 feet? Substitute 1 for a, —9 for b, and 20 for c. Forgetting that your calculator knows orders of operation and does exactly what you tell it to do. There is one real solution. To make this website work, we log user data and share it with processors. Share buttons are a little bit lower. Check reasonableness Use a calculator:

To make this website work, we log user data and share it with processors. Method 3 Solve by completing the square. There is one real solution. Check reasonableness Use a calculator: The discriminant is negative, so there are no real solutions.

You can determine the number of solutions of a quadratic equation by evaluating its discriminant. Use the discriminant to explain your answer.

Using the Discriminant Find the number of solutions of each equation using the discriminant. Will it reach a height of 40 feet?

Write as two equations. Method 1 Solve by graphing.
