Suppose that P is a polynomial of degree n≥1.Show that P has exactly n roots in C
Hint: Fundamental Theorem of Algebra


Solution Preview

Since P is a polynomial of degree n>=1, according to the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra, P has at least one root in C.
Assume this root is z_1, then we have P(x) = (x ...
