    Talking Finding zeros of polynomials

    Hi everyone!

    I am wondering if anyone knows a good way to solve this:

    "Find the zeros of the polynomial:

    P(z) = z3 - 3i z2 -2z

    Thank you!

    Hey Nora314.

    (Hint: factorize out the z and remember the quadratic formula to factorize a quadratic).
