Solve the followi

Answer :

x2 + 4ix – 4 = 0


Given x2 + 4ix – 4 = 0


x2 + 4ix + 4(–1) = 0


We have i2 = –1


By substituting –1 = i2 in the above equation, we get


x2 + 4ix + 4i2 = 0


x2 + 2ix + 2ix + 4i2 = 0


x(x + 2i) + 2i(x + 2i) = 0


(x + 2i)(x + 2i) = 0


(x + 2i)2 = 0


x + 2i = 0


x = –2i (double root)


Thus, the roots of the given equation are –2i and –2i.
