Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The imaginary zeros come in conjugate pairs, so 2i and 2i are zeros. To be zeros, they must be part of a (x^2 + a^2) expression, and plugging a = 2i into that gives (x^2 + 4). Now just divide the original polynomial by (x^2+4) and factor what is left.
