War die Summe der Quadrate diese Wurzeln?

Hallo Gast!

$$2x^2 - 3x + 27 = -4\\2x^2-3x+31=0$$

$$x = {-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac} \over 2a}$$

$$x = {3 \pm \sqrt{9-248} \over 2\cdot 2}$$

$$x = {3 \pm \sqrt{-239} \over 4}$$

$$\color{blue}x=(3\pm15.4596i)/4$$

$$x_1^2=(-230+92.7576i)/16\\ x_2^2=(-230-92.7576i)/16$$

$$\color{blue}x_1^2+x_2^2=-28.75$$
