### This Is a Certified Answer

Certified answers contain reliable, trustworthy information vouched for by a hand-picked team of experts. Brainly has millions of high quality answers, all of them carefully moderated by our most trusted community members, but certified answers are the finest of the finest.
1) The roots are real, equal numbers.
2) The roots are distinct rational numbers.
3) The roots are distinct irrational numbers.
4) The roots are distinct unreal numbers.
5) discriminant = b² -4ac

a.)    d = 3³ -4(1)(1) = 5            : Roots are distinct and irrational
b)     d = 7² - 4(1)(6) = 25         : Roots are distinct and rational
c)     d = -10² -4(1)(12) = 52      :Roots are distinct and irrational
