This will be a cubic, so (x-(-1))(x-1)(x-3) is one such cubic, just multiply
out the brackets.

As the polynomial has real coefficients the complex roots exist as conjugate
pairs, so if x=-2i is a root so is x=2i, which means that (x-2i)(x+2i)=x^2+4 is
a factor of F(x).

So dividing F(x) by x^2+4, we find:

2x^4+5x^3+5x^2+20x-12 = (x^2+4)(2x^2+5x -3)

Now use the quadratic formula to find the roots of 2x^2+5x -3, which are
x=1/2 and x=-3.

Thus the roots of F(x) are -2i, 2i, 1/2 and -3 (which we know is a complete list
of the roots of F(x), as every polynomial of degree n has at most n complex roots).

4. Hello, jhonwashington!

7) List the potential zeros of this polynomial function: .f(x) .= .6x^4 - x^2 + 9
A potential zero has the form: n/d
. . where n is a factor of the constant term
. . and d is a factor of the leading coefficient.

The factors of 9 are: ±1, ±3, ±9
The factors of 6 are: ±1, ±2, ±3, ±6

The potential zeros are: ±1, ±3, ±9, ±1/2, ±3/2, ±9/2, ±1/3, ±1/6

9) Solve the given equation in the real number system: .2x³ - 3x² - 3x - 5 .= .0
Using the Remainder Theorem, we find that x = 5/2 is a zero.
. . Hence, (2x - 5) is a factor.

Then we have: .(2x - 5)(x² + x + 1) .= .0

The quadratic factor has no real roots.

Therefore, the only real root is: .x = 5/2

12) Form a polynomial f(x) with real coefficients having the given degree and zeros:
. . . Degree 5; zeros: 2, -i; 1 + i

Complex roots always appear in conjugate pairs.
If i is a zero, then -i is a zero.
If 1 + i is a zero, then 1 - i is a zero.

The polynomial is: .(x - 2) (x - i) (x + i) (x - [1 + i]) (x - [1 - i])

I'll let you multiply it out . . .

14) Find the complex zeros of the given polynomial function. Write F in factored form.
. . F(x) .= .x^4 + 5x^2 + 4

We have: .x^4 + 5x^2 + 4 .= .0

Factor: .(x² + 1)(x² + 4) .= .0

Then: .x² + 1 .= .0 . . x² = -1 . . x = ±i
. . . . . x² + 4 .= .0 . . x² = -4 . . x = ±2i

. . F(x) .= .(x - i)(x + i)(x - 2i)(x + 2i)
