Well the leading coefficient is positive.

The degree is even and great or equal to 8.

That is about all I have I guess.

I was thinking there are exactly 7 real roots (plus some imaginary ones) but maybe you mean exactly 7 roots which includes real and imaginary.

**If that is what** **you mean** then my answer is not correct.

If it has exactly 7 roots then one of the roots must be a double.

It will have a degree of 8 (or more if there are more double roots, degree must be even )

Definitely a positve leading coefficient.

That is my 2 bob worth! :)
