For which values of c does the polynomial have two complex conjugate roots?
The polynomial will have two complex conjugate roots if and only if its discriminant is negative. Since a=1 and b=4, the polynomial's discriminant is given by
The discriminant is negative, when c>4.
The polynomial will have two complex conjugate roots for c>4.
