let speed is v
then to catch bus
6 + ½*3*t2 = v*t
3t2 -2vt + 12 = 0

Now the logic is simple, the passenger will catch the bus after a certain time. So the passenger can catch the bus only when time is a real number. So the quadratic equation must give t as a real number.

For that the discriminant (D) of the equation must be greater than or equal to zero.

4v2 – 4*3*12 >=0

for min velocity

v2 = 36

v = 6 m/s

Hope it clears. If you Like answer then please approve the  answer.
