solving for k but this gets you no where

Discriminant:

Real roots if discriminant ≥0: Clearly since minimum point is (i.e it lies above the x-axis so is positive)

will have real roots if the discriminant is greater, or equal to 0 (question does not say roots have to be distinct).

Well done but would it not be more beneficial to the OP if you questioned them, instead of giving the answer?

You have to calculate the discriminant.

With questions with multiple parts, most of the time there is a link at some point.

You've found an expression for the discriminant, and you know that when f(x) = 0 and the equation has real roots, the discriminant is...

what does the minimum point imply
so what is positive..?

For f(x)=0 to have real roots, the discriminant must be greater than or equal to 0. Clearly the discriminant (k+1)^2+8 is greater or equal to 0 (sketch it) - I just said the minimum point is (-1,8) to show that the discriminant is ≥0. You could just say (k+1)^2≥0 for the mark (the square of real numbers is positive).

However if the discriminant is greater than zero shouldnt there be roots this graph does not cross the x-axis

No, you are missing the point. f(x) will cross the x-axis and have roots!, but the discriminant is completely different. We need to show that the discriminant is positive (i.e is always above the x-axis) to show that f(x) has real roots
