x^4  + 9x^3  + 15x^2  + 9x + 14

 

We can use a factoring "trick" here....write this as

 

x^4 +  9x^3 + 14x^2  + x^2  + 9x  + 14     factor by grouping

 

x^2 ( x^2 + 9x + 14)  +  1 ( x^2 + 9x + 14)

 

(x^2 + 1) (x^2 + 9x + 14)

 

(x^2 + 1) (x+ 7) ( x + 2)

 

(x + 1i) ( x - 1i) (x+ 7) ( x + 2)
