RD Sharma Solutions Class 11 Quadratic Equations

RD Sharma Solutions Class 11 Chapter 14

The general form of a quadratic equation is \(ax^{2}\;+\; bx \;+\;c\;=\;0\)

(Where a, b, c are real and a is not equal to 0)

Let \(\alpha\) and \(\beta\) be the roots of this quadratic equation.

Therefore, \(\alpha \;+ \;\beta\;=\; \frac{-b}{a}\) and  \(\alpha \beta\;=\; \frac{c}{a}\)

Also, \(\alpha \;=\;\frac{-b+\sqrt{b^{2}-4ac}}{2a}\) and \(\beta \;=\;\frac{-b-\sqrt{b^{2}-4ac}}{2a}\)

The nature of roots depends on the following cases:

Case 1: \(b^{2}-4ac\;>\; 0\)

When the values of discriminant are positive then the roots of the quadratic equation are real and unequal.

Case 2: \(b^{2}-4ac\;=\; 0\)

When the value of discriminant is 0 then the roots of the quadratic equation are real and equal.

Case 3: \(b^{2}-4ac\;<\; 0\)<

When the values of discriminant are negative then the roots of the quadratic equation are unequal and imaginary.
