I just need to know if the statements in the brackets are correct.

1) -x^4 = 0 (complex roots 0 or2 or 4)

(real roots 2 or 4)

(rational roots 0)

2) 2x^5 - 4x^4 - 4x^2 + 5 = 0 (complex roots 0 or 2 or 4)

(real roots 1 or 3 or 5)

(rational roots + or - 5/2 or 1/2 or 1 or 5)

3)4x + 8 = 0 (complex roots 0)

(real roots 1)

(rational roots + or - 1/4 or 1/2 or 1 or 2 or or 8)

4)-2x^6 - x^2 + x - 7 = 0 (complex roots 0 or 2 or 4 or 6)

(real roots 2 or 4 or 6)

(rational roots + or - 1 or 1/2 or 7 or 7/2)

5)x^10 + x^8 - x^4 + 3x^2 - x + 1 = 0 (complex roots 0 or 2 or 4 or 6 or 8 or 10)

(real roots 0or 2 or 4 or 6 or 8 or 10)

(rational roots + or - 1)
