Complex Numbers And Quadratic Equations

Question
CBSEENMA11015553

If the roots of the equation bx2+ cx + a = 0 be imaginary, then for all real values of x, the expression 3b2x2 + 6bcx + 2c2 is

  • greater than 4ab

  • less than 4ab

  • greater than -4ab

  • less than 4ab

Solution

C.

greater than -4ab

As, bx2 + cx + a = 0 has imaginary roots
So, c2< 4ab
Now, 3b2x2 + 6bcx + 2c2
= 3(bx + c)2– c2≥ – c2≥ – 4ab
