Objective:

3
**To apply general theorems about polynomial equations.**

Objective: To apply general theorems about polynomial equations.

4
**The Fundamental Theorem of Algebra:**

5
**The Fundamental Theorem of Algebra:**

In the complex number system consisting of all real and imaginary numbers, if P(x) is a polynomial of degree n (n>0) with complex coefficients, then the equation P(x) = 0 has exactly n roots (providing a double root is counted as 2 roots, a triple root as 3 roots, etc).

6
**The Complex Conjugates Theorem:**

7
**The Complex Conjugates Theorem:**

If P(x) is a polynomial with real coefficients, and a+bi is an imaginary root, then automatically a-bi must also be a root.

8
**Irrational Roots Theorem:**

9
**Irrational Roots Theorem:**

Suppose P(x) is a polynomial with rational coefficients and a and b are rational numbers, such that √b is irrational. If a + √b is a root of the equation P(x) = 0 then a - √b is also a root.

10
**Odd Degree Polynomial Theorem:**

11
**Odd Degree Polynomial Theorem:**

If P(x) is a polynomial of odd degree (1,3,5,7,…) with real coefficients, then the equation P(x) = 0 has at least one real root!
