by considering the discrimination of the resulting quadratic, determine the number of points of intersection of the following line and curve:

line $\displaystyle 3x - 2y = 5$ and curve $\displaystyle y = 3x^2 - 4x - 2$

the book says two points of intersection and discriminant = 97

but i say two points of intersection and discriminant = 241

thanks
