Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0start with \[(x4)(x+2)(x(1+2i))(x(12i))\] and multiply out but before we being the last product is very easy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if the zeros are \(a+bi\) and \(abi\) the quadratic is \[x^22ax+(a^2+b^2)\] in your case it is \[x^2+2x+5\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh ok good then your final job is to multiply out \[(x4)(x+2)(x^2+2x+5)\]
