Use the given zero to find the remaining zero's of each polynomial function.
P(x)= x^3+3x^2+x+3; -i
I'm pretty lost with this stuff. I've been watching Patrick's videos trying to remember my high school days but wow it's been a while hehe.
It looks like Conjugate Pair Theorem would be the way to solve. If I figure it out I'll post my solution.
If you guys could give me some direction to help me get back into the game that would be AWESOME!!
Thanks a TON
Hello, RBlax!
Use the given zero to find the remaining zeros.
. .
Since is a zero of , then is also a zero.
. . (Complex roots always appear in conjugate pairs.)
Then: . are factors of
. . That is: . is a factor of
Dividing, we find that: .
Therefore, the zeros of are: .
Edit: Too slow . . . again!
.
This isn't using the The Conjugate Pair Theorem though right?
I think what they are wanting me to do looks something like...
then use synthetic division (which I begin to become lost)
Edit: I'm slow too haha
But thanks a ton for the help.
