By the way, if you get one complex or imaginary root, you get two. They come in pairs, like male and female twins. One has +imaginary number, the other has -the same imaginary number. They are called complex conjugates. a + b i and a - b i and a can be zero.

imaginary as in mecosonic, just changing the order of the letters but more than likely it's not a word you'll see in the dictionary, that's what real or imaginary refers to.

Just add the real and imaginary terms separately, and keep them separate. The imaginary terms are the ones with "i" -2 + 3i -1 - 21 -------- -3 + i

how about this let y = x^3 then your equation becomes y^2 - 7y - 8 = 0 (y-8)(y+1) = 0 so y = 8 or y = -1 then x^3 = 8 or x^3 = -1 x^3 - 8 = 0 (x-2)(x^2 + 2x + 4) = 0 this will give you the real root of x=2 and 2 imaginary roots from the quadratic or x^3 + 1 = 0 (x+1)(x^2 - x...
