Try with Hints


First hint

We know that if a quadratic equations have real roots then it's discriminant is >=0 so here \( b^{2}-4c \geq 0\). Now we will go casewise . First we will choose a particular Value for b then check what are the values of c that satisfies the above inequality.

Second Hint

for b=2, c=1

for b=3, c=1,2

for b=4, c=1,2,3,4

for b=5, c=1,2,3,4,5

for b=6, c=1,2,3,4,5,6

Final Step

we get required number =18.
