on of the polynomials is (x-2)(x^2+9)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Can you explain how you got that answer please?:) thanks!
nenadmatematika
  • nenadmatematika
if 2 is the zero of the polynomial then that polynomilal can be divided with (x-2) without rest....if 3i is the zero, then it's dividable with (x-3i)....you must know that 3i is the complex zero, and there is always one friend following him...it's -3i so this polynomial is dividable with (x-(-3i))=x+3i.....now you can multiply all the parenthesis and you get your polynomial....(x-2)(x-3i)(x+3i)....those last two give the difference of the squares...so you can write it as I did above....of course, you can multiply them also...:D

You are amazing! Thanks :)

if you'd like to see if you got this right, I can give you one example, and you can solve it here....check this one out....|dw:1330286335128:dw|

  • anonymous
Is that the final answer or do you have to multiply it out to get those zeros?
anonymous
  • anonymous
whoops ignore what I just said. :)
nenadmatematika
  • nenadmatematika
no no, it's OK...you have zeros given, and your task is to find polynomial which zeros are given for you....
anonymous
  • anonymous
so like the (x-2) (x^2 +9) is ur final answer? sorry that is were i am confused haha
nenadmatematika
  • nenadmatematika
you can leave it like that, but most professors would like to multiply...do you know how to do it"?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Can you help explain that to me? if you have time:) .... ALSO my next question is 3 and 2+2i so the answer would just be... (3-x) and (x+2+2i) and (x-2+2i) ??
nenadmatematika
  • nenadmatematika
well, OK lets start like this...do you know to multiply for example (x-2)(x+3)? it's some basic stuff you must know before you continue working with polynomials....multiply this so I can see...:D
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes isn't it x^2+1x-6
nenadmatematika
  • nenadmatematika
that's right....now we continue with this....for example if I tell you that one zero of the polynomial is some number, lets call it ''a'' that means that your polynomial is divisible with (x-a)...OK....now try to continue my next sentence: If -a is the zero of the polynomial, then your polynomial is divisible with...?
anonymous
  • anonymous
(x+a)?
nenadmatematika
  • nenadmatematika
great :D chocolate for you :D
anonymous
  • anonymous
haha! yeah!
anonymous
  • anonymous
so the final answer for the first one is: x^3-2x^2+9x-18?
nenadmatematika
  • nenadmatematika
now, If I tell you this: Polynomial has zeros a and -a, so I can write that polynomial as (x-a)(x+a) and if I multiply those two I'll get x^2-a^2....now you anwer: Polynomial has zeros 1 and -6 then you can write you polynomial as ...??? and if you multiply those two you'll get ...????? :D try
anonymous
  • anonymous
polynomial is (x-1) (x+6) and final answer is x^2+5x-6
anonymous
  • anonymous
what is the polynomial of 2+2i though is it just (x-2+2i) and (x+2+2i)
nenadmatematika
  • nenadmatematika
awesome!!! :D now the next step: If polynomial has zero i then it's divisible with (x-i)...now I told you earlier that i is ''complex zero'', and it never appears alone, it appears together with -i....so write that polynomial....and when you multiply use very important formula i^2=-1...try :D
anonymous
  • anonymous
so i just multiply (factor) the (x-2+2i) and (x+2+2i) and (x-3) together haha
nenadmatematika
  • nenadmatematika
be careful: if the given zero is 2+2i that means that your polynomial is divisible by x-(2+2i)...and it will appear with the ''friend'' 2-2i so its divisible also by (x-(2-2i)) so when you multiply those two, one thing is very important...every ''i'' in your polynomial must be cancelled....try to do it, so I can be sure you're not making any mistakes...:D

(x-3) (8) i think i did something wrong
anonymous
  • anonymous
i will show u what I did
anonymous
  • anonymous
(x-3) (2+2i) (2-2i) (x-3) (4-4i+4i-4i^2) (x-3) (4+4) (x-3) (8)
nenadmatematika
  • nenadmatematika
no no...you have to multiply (x-(2-2i))*((x-(2+2i))...try again, and be patient..:D
anonymous
  • anonymous
ohh! so do you distribute the x to the 2-2i and 2+2i
nenadmatematika
  • nenadmatematika
I didn't get that...just multiply and show me the procedure....
nenadmatematika
  • nenadmatematika
I'm back in two minutes :D
anonymous
  • anonymous
(x-3) (x-2+2i) (x-2-2i) is that right so far? :(
nenadmatematika
  • nenadmatematika
yes, go,go,go...:D
anonymous
  • anonymous
what do you do though when you multiply the x by -2i is it just -2ix?
nenadmatematika
  • nenadmatematika
of course, continue...;D
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay lets see... (x-3) (x^2-2x-2xi-2x+4-4i^2+2ix-4i-4i-4i^2) x^2-4x-4i^2+4+4-4i+4 x^2-4x+12-4i
nenadmatematika
  • nenadmatematika
number ''i'' must be gone after mulitplication...try again, look out for signs, and of course use i^2=-1
anonymous
  • anonymous
is the final answer x^2-4x+4
anonymous
  • anonymous
thanks for all ur help:) btw
nenadmatematika
  • nenadmatematika
no, try again.....the result you got now is (x-2)^2. That's polynomial with double zero x=2 so there's no 2+2i etc....you must try again....
anonymous
  • anonymous
well now i got something crazy... x^4-10x+12 :((
nenadmatematika
  • nenadmatematika
OK I'll do it...follow me carefuly: (x-2+2i)(x-2-2i)=x^2-2x-2xi-2x+4+4i+2xi-4i+4=x^2-4x+8 do you get it? you must be careful with doing this
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay i get that part
nenadmatematika
  • nenadmatematika
hahah...well that part is all!!! :D I hope I helped you :D
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh i was just combining it all wrong! thank you!!! :) yes you did!!

awesome for sure! I am pretty weak at math so I will for sure be contacting you!
