Find the polynomial zeros , Mathematics

If two zeros of the polynomial f(x) = x4 - 6x3 - 26x2 + 138x - 35 are 2 ± √3.Find the other zeros.     (Ans:7, -5)

Ans: Let the two zeros are 2 +√3 and 2 - √3

Sum of Zeros       = 2 + √3 + 2 - √3

= 4

Product of Zeros = ( 2+√3 )(2 - √3 )

= 4 - 3

= 1

Quadratic polynomial is x2 - (sum) x + Product

                  x4 - 4 x3 + x2

                 -----------------

                 -2x3 - 27x2 + 138x

                 - 2x3 + 8x2 - 2x

                -----------------------

                -35x2 + 140x - 35

                -35x2 + 140x - 35

                ------------------------

                    0

                ------------------------

∴ x2 - 2x - 35 = 0

(x - 7)(x + 5) = 0

x = 7, -5

other two Zeros are 7 and -5
