The quadratic $$2x^2-3x+27$$ has two imaginary roots. What is the sum of the squares of these roots? Express your answer as a decimal rounded to the nearest hundredth.

$$x=\frac{3\pm \sqrt{9-4\times 2\times 27}}{4}$$

$$x=\frac{3+3\sqrt{23}i}{4}, \frac{3-3\sqrt{23}i}{4}$$

Square both to get

$$x^2=\frac{-198+12\sqrt 23i}{16}, \frac{-198-12\sqrt 23i}{16}$$

You are very welcome!
