First use the discriminant to determine whether the equation has two nonreal complex solutions, one real solution with a multiplicity of two, or two real solutions. Then solve the equation.

Step 1
Given : The quadratic equation \(\displaystyle{x}^{{{2}}}-{3}{x}-{54}={0}\)
we have to tell using the discriminant to determine whether the equation has two nonreal complex solutions, one real solution with a multiplicity of two, or two real solutions also we have to solve the given equation.
Step 2
as we know that the discriminant is given as \(\displaystyle{b}^{{{2}}}-{4}{a}{c}\)
here \(\displaystyle{x}^{{{2}}}-{3}{x}-{54}={0}\)
a=1, b=-3, c=-54
\(\displaystyle{D}={\left(-{3}\right)}^{{{2}}}-{4}{\left({1}\right)}{\left(-{54}\right)}\)
\(\displaystyle{D}={\left(-{3}\right)}^{{{2}}}-{4}{\left({1}\right)}{\left(-{54}\right)}\)
D=9+216
D=225
since D is a perfect square thereforeThe roots exists are real and distinct.
\(\displaystyle{x}={\frac{{-{b}\pm\sqrt{{{D}}}}}{{{2}{a}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle{x}={\frac{{-{\left(-{3}\right)}\pm\sqrt{{{225}}}}}{{{2}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle{x}={\frac{{{3}\pm{15}}}{{{2}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle{x}={\frac{{{3}+{15}}}{{{2}}}},{\frac{{{3}-{15}}}{{{2}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle{x}={\frac{{{18}}}{{{2}}}},-{\frac{{{12}}}{{{2}}}}\)
x=9, -6
