Solve the following equation in the complex number system
x^4+x^3+4x^2+10x60=0

hint
x = 2 and x = 3 are roots
so either do long division by x2 and x+3
to get a quadratic or do it by synthetic division.
Solve that quadratic using the formula.

so what would my equation be to figure this question out?

Do what Reiny said, step by step
****__x^3__+3x^2__+10x__+30________
x2  x^4 + x^3 + 4 x^2 + 10 x  60
******x^4 2x^3
******
**********3 x^3 + 4 x^2 + 10 x  60
**********3 x^3  6 x^2
**********
****************+10 x^2 + 10 x 60
****************+10 x^2  20 x
******************
*************************+30 x 60
*************************+30 x 60
*************************
Remainder = 0
Now divide x^3+3x^2+10x+30
by x + 3
That will leave you with a quadratic which you solve with the quadratic equation, probably resulting in two complex conjugate roots.
