### Quadratic Formula and the Discriminant

The quadratic formula can be used to solve

*any*quadratic equation.If you do not see an easy way to factor a quadratic equation, use the formula.

If the discriminant is positive, the equation has 2 real roots.

If the discriminant is 0, it has one rational root.

If the discriminant is negative, it has two complex conjugate roots.
