**Using the quadratic equation an the Discriminant**

- PH 9-8
- Using the discriminant
- Quadratic equations can have 1, 2, or zero real solutions. The discriminant allows us to determine the number of possible solutions before we solve.
- If the discriminant > 0, there are two real solutions
- If the discriminant = 0, there is one real solution.
- If the discriminant < 0, there are no real solutions.
- Example 1-3
- Assignment: P. 472-473 (1-31 odd)
