16x^4+8x^3+17x^2+8x+1

I have tried it but i keep getting the wrong roots can someone solve this?

• Algebra 2. -

is that all equal to zero.
Like so,
16x^4+8x^3+17x^2+8x+1=0

• Algebra 2. -

it dosent say on the worksheet, it says

g(x)=16x^4+8x^3+17x^2+8x+1

• Algebra 2. -

That is the same thing.

What are you trying to do? Simplify the equation.

• Algebra 2. -

oh well we have to figure out the roots but this one im lost on how to finish it

• Algebra 2. -

(4 x+1)^2 (x^2+1) is the simplified version

and x=-1/4
and x=+i and x=-i
