**Damon**, Thursday, August 5, 2010 at 3:07pmw2 - 2w + 2 = 0

a = 1

b = -2

c = 2

b^2-4ac = 4-4(1)(2) = 4-8 = -4

sqrt (-4) is imaginary

no real solutions (although 2 complex solutions)

1 - 7a2 = -7a - 2

7a^2 -7a -3 = 0

b^2-4ac = 49 -4(7)(-3) = 133

sqrt 133 is real number >0

so two real solutions
