Find the value of k for which the roots of the quadratic equation 2x^2+kx+8=0, will have equal value.
Solution of this question

1. lavanya

If the roots of quadratic equation are equal, then the discriminant is zero.
Therefore,
D = 0
b^2 – 4ac = 0
Here, a=2, b=k and c=8
k^2 – 4*2*8 = 0
k^2 – 64 = 0
k^2 = 64
k = ±8

2. Gautam Kumar

The value of k.

\bf{\red{\underline{\bf{Explanation\::}}}}
Explanation:

We have 2x² + kx + 8 = 0

A/q

Discriminate (D) = 0

a = 2
b = k
c = 8
Formula use :

\boxed{\bf{b^{2}-4ac=0}}}

\begin{gathered}\longrightarrow\sf{b^{2} -4ac=0}\\\\\longrightarrow\sf{(k)^{2} -4\times 2\times 8=0}\\\\\longrightarrow\sf{(k)^{2} -64=0}\\\\\longrightarrow\sf{(k)^{2} =64}\\\\\longrightarrow\sf{k=\pm\sqrt{64} }\\\\\longrightarrow\sf{\green{k=\pm8}}\end{gathered}
⟶b

−4ac=0
⟶(k)

−4×2×8=0
⟶(k)

−64=0
⟶(k)

=64
⟶k=±
64

⟶k=±8

Thus;

The value of k is ±8 .
