Describe the roots of the equation shown below. 64x^2 - 16x + 1=0

A. There are two complex roots
B. There is one real, double root
C. There are two real, irrational roots
D. There are two real, rational roots​

Answers

Answer 1
Answer:

Answer:

B. There is one real, double root

Step-by-step explanation:

For ax² + bx + c = 0, the discriminant is b² − 4ac.

If the discriminant is positive and a perfect square, there are two real, rational roots.

If the discriminant is positive and not a perfect square, there are two real, irrational roots.

If the discriminant is 0, there is one real, double root.

If the discriminant is negative, there are two complex roots.

Here, a = 64, b = -16, and c = 1.

b² − 4ac

= (-16)² − 4(64)(1)

= 0

The discriminant is 0.  Therefore, there is one real, double root

Answers

Boxers = b
Spaniels = s




Now you have two equations - one that tells you the number of boxers in relation to spaniels and one telling you the number of each breed in relation to the total number of dogs. Solve using substitution.

True or false all squares have four congruent sides .since rectangles are squares all rectangles have four congruent sides

Answers

That is false. A rectangle has two sides that are congruent with each other and another two that are congruent with each other
True: All squares have four congruent sides.

Rectangles are NOT squares.

All squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares.
This is because squares are a certain type of rectangle.
