35 PRACTICE 5-8 Evaluate the discriminant of each equation. Tell how many solutions each equation has and whether the solutions are real or imaginary. 1 y = x 2 + 10 x – 25 2. y = x 2 + 10 x + 10 3. y = 9 x 2 – 24 x 4. y = 4 x 2 – 4 x + 1 5. y = 4 x 2 – 5 x + 1 6. y = 4 x 2 – 3 x + 1 7. y = x 2 + 3 x + 4 8. y = x 2 + 7 x – 3 9. y = –2 x 2 + 3 x – 5 10. y = x 2 – 5 x + 4 11. y = x 2 + 12 x + 36 12. y = x 2 + 2 x + 3 13. y = 2 x 2 – 13 x – 7 14. y = –5 x 2 + 6 x – 4 15. y = –4 x 2 – 4 x – 1 ANSWERS:
