I need some help on how to solve this question. It asks me to find all real numbers with the property that the polynomial equation x^10 + a*x +1 = 0 has a real solution r such that 1/r is also a solution. I tried plugging in r and 1/r and equating the 2 equations, but that got me nowhere.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
