Math clarification Reiny

This is the problem you helped me with. I was curious, do I write the solution set as (1 + i3�ã3)/2,
(1-i3�ã3)/2

change it to the standard form first

x^2 - x + 7 = 0
a=1, b=-1, c = 7

x = (1 �} �ã(1 - 4(1)(7))/2
= (1 �} �ã-27)/2

Your answer is an imaginary number or called a complex number, you could rewrite is as
x = (1 �} 3�ã3 i)/2
