A linear equation has 1 root(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A quadratic equation has 2 roots(including two equal roots and two complex roots)

A cubic equation has 3 roots

Is this means that the no of roots of a equation in one unknown depends on the degree of the polynomial?Why?Any proof and explanation?

Thx a lot :)
