# Write a polynomial equation of degree 3 such that two of its roots are 2 and an imaginary number.

**Solution:**

A polynomial equation of degree 3 such that two of its roots are 2 and an imaginary number [Given]

We know that the equation has 3 roots one is 2 and the other two are imaginary

If one root is 2 then the equation must have (x - 2) as its factor.

Consider i, -i as the other two imaginary numbers

(x - i)(x + i)

Roots of the polynomial of degree 3 is (x - 2)(x - i)(x + i)

Solve the roots to get the equation

(x - 2)(x^{2} + xi - xi - i^{2})

We know that i^{2} = 1

= (x - 2)(x^{2} - i^{2})

So we get

= (x^{3} + x - 2x^{2} - 2)

= x^{3} - 2x^{2} + x - 2

Therefore, the polynomial equation of degree 3 is (x^{3} - 2x^{2} + x - 2).

## Write a polynomial equation of degree 3 such that two of its roots are 2 and an imaginary number.

**Summary:**

The polynomial equation of degree 3 such that two of its roots are 2 and an imaginary number is (x^{3} - 2x^{2} + x - 2).
