(b^2-4ac)= (25-4(2)(7) ) = (25-56) = (-31)

There will be two imaginary roots due to the NEGATIVE discriminant

The discriminant formula is \(b^2-4ac\) . Substituting...

\((-5)^2-4(7)(2)=25-56=-31\). The discriminant is -31.

Since the discriminant is negative, it has complex roots.

You are very welcome!
