Answer :

Given: 16x2 = 24x + 1

16x2 – 24x – 1 = 0


Comparing with standard quadratic equation ax2 + bx + c = 0


a = 16, b = – 24, c = – 1


Discriminant D = b2 – 4ac


= (– 24)2 – 4.16. – 1


= 576 + 64 = 640 > 0


Hence the roots of equation are real.


Roots are given by





Hence the roots of equation are
