Use the discriminant to determine the number of real-number solutions for the equation:
8x2 + 8x + 2 = 0

8x^2 + 8x + 2 = 0 a = 8, b = 8, c = 2 discriminant = b^2 - 4ac = 8^2 - 4(8)(2) = 64 - 64 = 0 There are one real number solution for the equation 8x^2 + 8x + 2 = 0

8x^2 + 8x + 2 = 0

a = 8, b = 8, c = 2

discriminant = b^2 - 4ac = 8^2 - 4(8)(2) = 64 - 64 = 0

There are one real number solution for the equation 8x^2 + 8x + 2 = 0

a = 8, b = 8, c = 2

discriminant = b^2 - 4ac = 8^2 - 4(8)(2) = 64 - 64 = 0

There are one real number solution for the equation 8x^2 + 8x + 2 = 0
