# If a, b, c

For roots to be real and distinct D should be greater than 0

Discriminant (D) = b2 – 4ac

In the discriminant b2 is a positive number since square cannot be negative given a > 0 which means a is also positive

Now consider the product – 4 × c

As c < 0 c is negative

We are multiplying two negative numbers which would result in a positive number which means – 4 × c is also positive

So, we can conclude that b2 – 4ac is positive

Hence D > 0

Hence roots are real and distinct
