therefore minus fraction numerator straight b over denominator 2 straight a end fraction less than 0
rightwards double arrow negative straight b greater than 0
rightwards double arrow straight b less than 0
Now comma space straight f left parenthesis 0 right parenthesis greater than 0 space as space parabola space cuts space positive space straight Y minus axis.
rightwards double arrow straight c greater than 0
