u noe how x^5=1 has 5 roots which some of them are not real in complex field.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

and so is x^2=-64 with roots = -8i or 8i

and i notice that the sum of roots = 0 (msut inculde non real --> complex number)

is this becasue of the rule of polynomial --> -b/a = sum of roots

for this case b always =0 so -b/a = 0 ?

or (there is nothing to do with this and my example are just a fulke) once complex number is incolved then polynoimial rules can not apply?
