```							For the first equation without loss of generality assume a>0then since none of a and c is zerograph of P(x) will be -ve at -infinity and +ve at +inifintyso it will cut x axis at once atleastSame is the case with Q(x)So totally the P(x)Q(x)=0 will have atleast 2 real rootsArun KumarIIT DelhiAskiitians Faculty

```							Discriminant of P(x) ;D`=b^2-4ac and that of Q(x) D"=d^2+4acWe are given that ac not equal to 0 .thus ac can either be -ve or + ve.If ac is -ve D` is +ve while D" can be -ve or + veAnd if ac is +ve D" is + ve and D` can be + ve or - ve.For both the cases P(x)Q(x)=0 has at least two real roots
