Hey, I was wondering if anybody would be able to explain how to arrive to (a). It's in my notes but I don't seem how they got there?
Find the roots of the following polynominal.
p(x) = x^4 - x^3 + 4x^2 + 3x + 5
Info: b = 1 + 2i is a root.
Sp b(bar) = 1-2i should also be a root.
Try to divide p(x) by (x-(1+2i)) (x-(1-2i))
(a) = x^2 - 2x +5
Thanks :]
