Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2if 1+sqrt3 is a root then so is 1sqrt3: (x(1+sqrt3))(x(1sqrt3))*P(x) = 0 (x^2  2x 2)*P(x) = 0 P(x) must be linear in the form: (mx + n). So now you can mutiply out: (x^2 2x  2)*(mx + n). now equate the two expressions coeficient to coeficient an I got a = 12, b = 6.
