have only one solution each.

Since I'm come late to this party, why don't you tell me

what an "absolute" is, and what is its relevance

to a quadratic equation?

Oh, and by the way, the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra states

that "Every non-zero, single-variable, degree n polynomial with complex

coefficients has, counted with multiplicity, exactly n complex roots."

And since all coefficients are complex (since `'i' may = 0) then any

polynomal of order N has N roots. Again, some may have i = 0.

A linear equation has one root, a quadratic equation has two

roots, a cubic equation has three roots, a quartic equation...
