I have a problem that I am not understanding for homework:

I assumed that thus the constant would be '4'... (ax^3 + ax^2 +ax +Find a polynomial with real coefficients, degree of 3, zeros of 2,1,-i, and satisfies the condition that f(0)=44)

And I assumed that the zeros would meand:(x-2)(x-1)and(x^2+1)

The problem that I am facing is that the above would result in a degree of 4, not 3. Is there some small bit I am missing, or am I misinterperting (sp?) the question.
