How do you find the polynomial function P of lowest degree, having rational coefficients, with the given zero: 3i? Precalculus Polynomial Functions of Higher Degree Zeros 1 Answer bp Dec 12, 2016 Answer: #x^2+9# Explanation: If given zero is 3i, then -3i would also be a zero of the function, because complex zeros always occur in conjugate pairs. Thus the factors of the polynomial would be (x+3i)(x-3i) which equals #x^2+9# Related questions What is a zero of a function? How do I find the real zeros of a function?
