Consider all possible trinomials of the form x^2 + p*x + q
, where p,q
are integers such that 1 ≤ p,q ≤ 2014
Among them are m
trinomials having integer zeroes, and n
having no real roots.
Which number is higher, m or n?
(In reply to Request for clarification

We say that m is a root or zero of a polynomial P if m is a solution to the equation P(m)=0.
Both terms are commonly used.
