6. Use a calculator to approximate the ﬁve ﬁfth roots of 1. (See Example 11.7.4, number 4.)
7. According to Theorem 3.16 in Section 3.4, the polynomial p(x) = x4 + 4 can be factored
into the product linear and irreducible quadratic factors. In Exercise 13 in Section 8.7, we
showed you how to factor this polynomial into the product of two irreducible quadratic factors
using a system of nonlinear equations. Now that we can compute the complex fourth roots
of −4 directly, we can simply apply the Complex Factorization Theorem, Theorem 3.14, to
obtain the linear factorization p(x) = (x − (1 + i))(x − (1 − i))(x − (−1 + i))(x − (−1 − i)).
By multiplying the ...
