It seems to me your work is correct.Originally Posted byharold

I think you are asking how do you determine whether a polynomial is irreducible over and ?

Let me begin by answering the question about . Any non-linear polynomial is reducible over ! That is called the "fundamental theorem of algebra".

To answer the other question whether a polynomial is reducible over . All you need to find its roots. And confirm that they are not complex but real.
