1 Notes 6.6 Fundamental Theorem of Algebra

2 If P(x) is a polynomial with degree n >1 with complex coefficients, then P(x) = 0 has at least one complex root.

3 An nth degree polynomial equation has exactly n roots; related polynomial function has exactly n zeros. If you factor a polynomial of degree n, then it has n linear factors.

4 EX 1 x 4 – 3x 3 + 4x + 1 = 0 State the number of complex roots, the possible number of real roots, and the possible rational roots.

5 EX 2 State the number of complex roots, the possible number of real roots, and the possible rational roots. x 3 + 2x 2 – 4x – 6 = 0

6 EX 3 Find all the zeros. x 5 + 3x 4 – x - 3
