Given an equation ax^2+bx+c=0
what values a,b cause the roots of the equation to be a and b and the discriminant to be equal to c?
(In reply to
re: a root of the matter ..???... by Ady TZIDON)
The problem does not ask us what value is c, yet here was the solution I was able to derive [with Q = SQRT(7)]:
(a, b, c) = {
(0, 0, 0),
([5 + iQ]/8, [1 + 3iQ]/8, [57 + 11iQ]/128),
([5  iQ]/8, [5 + iQ]/8, [ 5 + 17iQ]/128)
}
