# Need help polynomial functions

How is everyone this November morning? I just need some help today with some polynomial problems that are tricky for me.

what are the roots/zeros of 2x^2+4x+7?

(Hint: this one will not factor, so you will have to use something else…)

Please and thank you! 0^>

If the polynomial (quadratic) will not factor, then use the Quadratic formula

$$x = {-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac} \over 2a}$$

We will have to assume  2x^2+4x+7 = 0       SInce you are looking for roots

For this    a = 2 b = 4  c = 7

-4 +-sqrt(-40)    /   4     =     -1 +-  1/2 i sqrt (10)
