If I remember correctly, a n-th degree polynomial has exactly n roots, although they may be real or complex. A n-th degree polynomial will have at most n real roots. A prime polynomial of degree n will not have n real roots, for example: f(x) = x^2 + 4 has no real roots (try to factor it), but 2 complex ones, namely +/- 2i
