I'm stuck on this question. Could you give me a clue as to where I should start? find a,b,and c... ax^2+bx+c. P(3+4i)=0, and P(3-4i)=o I appreciate your help very much.

This is a quadratic, so it only has the two factors. Multiply them out. Simplify. Compare the coefficients. Copy down the values of a, b, and c.
