Degree 5; Zeros: -4; -i; -2+i

f(x)=a( )

- College Algebra! help! -
**Reiny**, Tuesday, March 26, 2013 at 9:21pmcomplex zeros always come in conjugate pairs

so if -i is a zero , so is +i

if -2+i is a zero, so is -2 - i

the zero of -4 comes from the factor (x+4)

the zeros of ±i come from (x^ + 1)

the zeros of -2 ± i produce

(x-(-2+i))(x - (-2-i) )

= (x^2 + 4x + 5)

so a possible polynomial is

f(x) = (x+4)(x^2 + 1)(x^2 + 4x + 5)

expand if needed
