Given:

Given quadratic equation is $2x^2 - 6x + 3 = 0$.

To do:

We have to find the nature of the roots of the given quadratic equation and find them.

Solution:

Comparing the given quadratic equation with the standard form of the quadratic equation $ax^2+bx+c=0$, we get,

$a=2, b=-6$ and $c=3$.

The discriminant of the standard form of the quadratic equation $ax^2+bx+c=0$ is $D=b^2-4ac$.

Therefore,

$D=(-6)^2-4(2)(3)=36-24=12>0$.

As $D>0$, the given quadratic equation has real and distinct roots.

 $x=\frac{-b \pm \sqrt{\mathrm{D}}}{2 a}$

$=\frac{-(-6) \pm \sqrt{12}}{2 \times 2}$

$=\frac{6 \pm \sqrt{4 \times 3}}{2 \times 2}$

$=\frac{6 \pm 2 \sqrt{3}}{4}$

$=\frac{2(3 \pm \sqrt{3})}{4}$

$=\frac{3 \pm \sqrt{3}}{2}$

Hence, the roots of the given quadratic equation are $\frac{3+\sqrt{3}}{2}, \frac{3-\sqrt{3}}{2}$.
