#### Answer:

We have real roots.

#### Explanation:

The discriminant of a cubic equation

- If discriminant is positive, we have real roots;
- if it is zero it has repeated roots and all real; and
- if it is less than zero, we have one rel root and two complex conjugates.

In the given equation

=

Hence, we have real roots.
