well there are 2 imaginary roots, if you are given 4 + i the conjugate is also a root 4 - i these roots come in pairs sometimes written \[x = 4 \pm i\] you are told 2 roots are real, -2, 2 a degree 5 polynomial has 5 roots.... so since imaginary roots come in pairs, the 5th root has to be real... hope that helps

So three real roots and two imaginary? Or would the all be considered "real"
