first of all, I always have my quadratic equations start with a positive coefficient of the square term, so...

2x^2 - 3x + 7 = 0

disc.= 9 - 4(2)(7) = -47

Depending of the value of this discriminant, your text book should have the basic and most fundamental information about the nature of the roots.

Let us know what you have decided as to the 3 choices.
