Find the roots of the equation by completing the square: 3x^2-6x-2=0. Prove your answer by solving by the quadratic formula.

Calculating delta: 
Δ=b²-4ac
a=3
b=-6
c=-2
Δ=36-4*3*(-2)=36+24=60
√Δ=√60
Delta is positive so there are two roots:
x1=\( \frac{ -b+ \sqrt[2]{delta} }{2a} \)
x1=\( \frac{6+ \sqrt{delta} }{2*3} \)=\( \frac{3+ \sqrt{15} }{3} \)
x2=\( \frac{3- \sqrt{15} }{3} \)

\( 3x^2-6x-2=0\\\\(\sqrt3\ x)^2-2\cdot\sqrt3\ x\cdot\sqrt3+(\sqrt3)^2-(\sqrt3)^2-2=0\\\\(\sqrt3\ x-\sqrt3)^2-3-2=0\\\\(\sqrt3\ x-\sqrt3)^2=5\iff\sqrt3\ x-\sqrt3=-\sqrt5\ \vee\ \sqrt3\ x-\sqrt3=\sqrt5\\\\\sqrt3\ x=\sqrt3-\sqrt5\ \vee\ \sqrt3\ x=\sqrt3+\sqrt5\ \ \ \ \ |multiply\ both\ sides\ by\ \sqrt3\\\\3x=3-\sqrt{15}\ \vee\ 3x=3+\sqrt{15}\ \ \ \ \ \ \ |divide\ both\ sides\ by\ 3\\\\x=\frac{3-\sqrt{15}}{3}\ \vee\ x=\frac{3+\sqrt{15}}{3} \)
