The function

#### Explanation:

According to the fundamental theorem of algebra, every polynomial of degree

Your function is a 12th degree polynomial, so it has twelve complex zeroes.

Note: a **complex number** is a number of the form

If **real** (the complex numbers include the real numbers).

If **imaginary**.

If **pure imaginary**.

The 12 complex zeroes of your function include four real zeroes and eight imaginary zeroes.
