form a polynomial f(x) with real coefficients having the given degree and zeros. degree 4 zeros 2-3i; -1 multiplicity 2 when i did it i got x4+6x3+16x2+18x+7 x=-1 x=-1 x=(2-3i) x=(2+3i)

Show all your working so that your mistake(s) can be pinpointed. Note that the factors of f(x) are (x+1)^2, (x - 2 + 3i) and (x - 2 - 3i).
