Quadratic Equation Properties

Given equation $\displaystyle ax^2 +bx +c =0\; $ ; $\displaystyle a,b,c \in \mathbb{R}$ .
Find the relation of coefficients a,b,c in a single relation such that the equation has two real solutions .
Or find the function $\displaystyle F(a,b,c)=0$ such that the condition holds true (two real solutions ).
What I think is $\displaystyle F(a,b,c)=a+b+c=0$ .

The most used and known relation is $\displaystyle D=b^2 - 4ac >0$ , but how to find the relation above ?

$D\gt 0$ means two real solutions. The question is a little ambiguous.

$(b^2 - 4ac)/a^2 > 0$
