13. 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 this exercise, we present a method
for obtaining that factorization.
(a) Show that p has no real zeros.
(b) Because p has no real zeros, its factorization must be of the form (x2 + ax + b)(x2 + cx + d)
where each factor is an irreducible quadratic. Expand this quantity and gather like terms
(c) Create and solve the system of nonlinear equations which results from equating the
coeﬃcients of the expansion found above with those of x4 + 4. You should get four
equations in the four unknowns a, b, c and d. Write p(x) in factored form.
