Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you are given 2 (or more than 2, it doesn't matter) roots of a polynomial, say a and b in this case, then that just means if you were to factor your polynomial, you would get \[f(x)=(xa)(xb)\] By multiplying this together, you get the equation \[x^2(a+b)+ab\] Thus, in your example, you would just plug in \[a=2+\sqrt{5}, b=2\sqrt{5}\] to the above equation to reach your answer.
