The no of roots of this equation are the no of points of intersection of y=x^4+x^3 and y=x^2+3kx+2k^2.
Differentiating y=x^4+x^3 wrt x we get dy/dx=4x^3+3x^2=x^2(4x+3). dy/dx>0 when x> -3/4, dy/dx
The graph of y=x^2+3kx+2k^2= (x-3k/2)^2-k^2/4 is a parabola with vertex at
(-3k/2,-k^2/4) By plotting these graphs we observe that there are two points of intersections. So the equation has two distinct real roots for each k belongs to (0.75,1) .
