Mark the Correct alternative in the following:

The values of k for which is quadratic equation has real and equal roots are

A. -11, -3

B. 5, 7

C. 5, -7

D. None of these

Answer :

given kx2 + 1 = kx + 3x – 11x2

x2(k+11) – x(k + 3) + 1 = 0


as the roots are real and equal then the discriminant is equal to zero.


D = b2 – 4ac = 0


(k+3)2 – 4 (k+11) (1) = 0


K2 + 9 + 6k – 4k – 44 = 0


K2 + 2k – 35 = 0


(k-5) (k+7) = 0


K = 5, -7.
