Answer:

x= -1+i; -1-i

Explanation:

Simplify the equation as #x^2 +2x+2=0#

This can be solved by completing the square #x^2+2x+1= -1#

#(x+1)^2 = -1#

x+1= #+- i#

x= -1+i; -1-i

Answer:

There are no solutions in the set of real numbers

Explanation:

We have that

#3x^2+6x+6=0=>3(x^2+2x+1)+3=0=>3(x+1)^2+3=0#

From the last result we conclude that the equation does not have any real roots.
