If a + bi is a zero of a polynomial, then a  bi (its conjugate) is a zero, as well. This sounds like we're adding more and more imaginary complications, but in fact, this is good news: if multiplied correctly, the imaginary terms will always cancel out. Write the polynomial in factored form (assuming the leading coefficient iz one) with (x  zero) for each given zero. Expand to find standard form if done correctly, the imaginary terms should cancel out.
