1-5i + n = 0 1+5i +m = 0 n= -1+5i m= -1-5i (1-5i -1+5i) (1+5i -1-5i)

1 +5i -1 -5i -5i -25i^2 +5i +25i^2 -1 -5i +1 +5i 5i +25i^2 -5i -25i^2

? Ok.

\[ f(x) = (x-(1+5i))(x-(1-5i)) \] \[ = x^2 - x(1-5i) -x(1+5i) + (1+5i)(1-5i)\] \[ = x^2 -x +5xi - x - 5xi + 1 -5i + 5i - 25i^2\] \[ = x^2 - 2x + 1 + 25 \] \[ = x^2 - 2x + 26 \] \[ \rightarrow f(1-5i) = 0, f(1+5i) = 0\]

When you are doing this problem: I understand the first equation is just subtracting from x then the secong equation you are distributing... why do you add the additonal (1+5i)(1-5i)??
anonymous
  • anonymous
It's all the same equation. I didn't add the (1+5i)(1-5i). That term is the result of multiplying the last term in each factor.. \[ (a - b)(a - c) = a^2 -ac -ab +bc\] Where b in this case is (1+5i) and c is (1-5i)

Ok..I dont understand. But thank you so much for you help. I have the answer just not sure how I got it... thanks again.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Well wait. Which part don't you understand?
anonymous
  • anonymous
It doesn't do any good to have the answer and not understand how you got it. Otherwise you won't be able to use this tool on more complicated tasks.

Do you agree that \[ (x-a)(x-b) = x^2 - ax -bx +ab \]
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes I agree. That would be just simply distrubtng....
anonymous
  • anonymous
Right. Do you also agree that if x=a or x=b then the product (x-a)(x-b) would be 0 because one of the factors would be 0?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Did I lose you?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Kinda.. because I dont know where the zero comes from??
anonymous
  • anonymous
\[ If\ x = a, then\ (x-a) = (a-a) = 0 \rightarrow (x-a)(x-b) = 0*(a-b) = 0\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
Thanks for your help.. I dont want to waste anymore of your time...
anonymous
  • anonymous
... You're not wasting my time. Did you understand my last sentence?
anonymous
  • anonymous
\[ \rightarrow \] just means 'therefore'
anonymous
  • anonymous
I wish I did...
anonymous
  • anonymous
Let x = a. Then (x-a) = (a-a). (a-a) = ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
0?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes. a - a = 0. No matter what 'a' is.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ok.. so now that I know that.. what signifigance does that have in my problem?
anonymous
  • anonymous
So what we're saying is that when x = a, (x-a) = 0. If (x-a)=0 then (x-a)(x-b) would be 0*(x-b) which is?
anonymous
  • anonymous
The point of the problem is to find a polynomial that has 2 roots. That means that there are two different values for x at which the polynomial will be 0. We construct such a polynomial by writing an expression which has two factors (x-a)(x-b) Where a and b are the two roots (0's). When x is equal to either a or b, the whole expression will be equal to 0.

  • anonymous
Does that make sense?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Thanks for your help. But I really need to go. Im not getting it. But appreciate your help so much...
anonymous
  • anonymous
Give it some thought. And try to follow through what I've written. If you have questions, feel free to come back and ask.
