# discriminant of multivariate polynomial

If I do

```
R.<x,z,I>=QQ[]
f_str = 'x**3 + x*z +1'
f = eval(f_str)
f.discriminant(x)
```

this works out correctly, giving

```
-4*z^3 - 27
```

But if I instead replace the coefficient of any monomial with a rational, such as

```
R.<x,z,I>=QQ[]
f_str = '1.0*x**3 + x*z +1'
f = eval(f_str)
f.discriminant(x)
```

I get the following error:

```
AttributeError: 'MPolynomial_polydict' object has no attribute 'discriminant'
```

Can someone explain how to make it work?
