1) f(x) = x  x^2 When the determinant (b^2  4ac) of a quadratic is negative, it will have nonreal zeros. This is true for f(x)  (1/2) 2) No In order to get i^x = 1, x must be four, or some multiple of four (could also be negative because 1/1 is equal

Differential Equations
The equation should be: x' + y' = x  y => y' + (1)y = (x  x')

Differential Equations
x'=y+t y'=xt Add these two equations, you get: x' + y' = x  y y' + (x')y = x That gives you a linear differential equation of the form: y' + Py = Q Considering that P is the derivative of x, it'll make things easy while solving for the integrating
