I need help with my precalc hw.

we are learning about finding zeros

I dont which method I should use for this problem:

if i is a zero of x^3+3x^2+ix+(4+i)

what do i do? synthetic divison? or long division?

when i did long division i got a werid polynomial with a lot of 'i's in them what do I do with that?

Thanks!
