**Reiny**, Saturday, September 26, 2009 at 5:55pmthe usual way to write powers in this forum is x^2 for x

^{2}

so x^2 + 4x + 7

= x^2 + 4x + 4 - 4 + 7

= (x+2)^2 + 3

If I had the parabola y = (x+2)^2 + 3

its vertex would be above the x-axis at (-2,3) and it opens upwards.

So it cannot cross the x-axis.

Since roots are simply the x-intercepts of the corresponding function, we conclude that there are no real roots.
