1. if -4 + 3 i
then -4 - 3 i is also a zero
so
(x + 4 - 3 i) (x + 4 + 3 i) ( x-1) (x-1) = y

2. alternative way:

f(x) = (x-1)^2 (a quadratic)
complex roots always come in conjugate pairs, so -4 - 3i is another
sum of the complex roots = -8
product of the complex roots = (-4+3i)(-4 - 3i)
= 16 - 9i^2 = 25
so the quadratic part is x^2 + 8x + 25

f(x) = (x^2 + 8x + 25)(x-1)^2

of course you could also expand
f(x) = (x - (-4+3i))(x - (-4-3i))(x-1)^2 to get the same thing
this is how Damon did it
