1.Find the number of real roots and imaginary roots:

In order to find all real roots, we must count the number of times the sign changes in the equation for f(x). Thus, there are two sign changes, from +10 to -34, and -8 to +3. Thus, there are two positive real roots.

In order to find the number of negative real roots, we need to count the sign changes in f(-x). Thus,

Thus, the sign changes from -34 to +5, +5 to -8, and ...
