Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok then yeah what @experimentX said if two of the complex roots is in the form: \[x = a \pm bi\] then \[xa = \pm bi\] \[(xa)^{2} = b^{2}\] \[x^{2}+ (2a)x +(a^{2}+b^{2}) = 0\] anyway , my point is that a pair of complex roots come from a quadratic equation :

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\Large x^4+x^3+3x^2+2x+2 \\ \Large =x^4+2x^2+x^3+x^2+2(x+1)\\ \Large =x^4+2x^2+x^2(x+1)+2(x+1)\\ \Large =x^2(x^2+2)+(x^2+2)(x+1)\\ \Large =(x^2+2)(x^2+x+1)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I think the trick is seeing to split up the \(3x^2\) as \(2x^2+x^2\).
