1. One root Z3-15z2+76z-140 = 0 is an integer. Solve the equation.
5. The eqution Z4-8z3+20z2-72z+99= 0 has a pure imaginary root Solve the equation.
Please give me some tip on what i should do !!
Thanks a lot!

For the second one, try relating the coefficients to the roots. Then use the fact that there is a purely imaginary root, and the fact that all of the coefficients are real to manipulate the 4 equations you get and you can find all 4 roots this way.
(I had to have a go at this question myself as once the factor formula couldn't find any roots I couldn't not solve it could I?)
