I need help finding complex roots
Hi all. I'm very new to HP Prime and I've tried to do my research about my question, but everything I try doesn't work.
I'm trying to find roots of a Quadratic formula. I can't find out how to do it. Example: x^2+2x+5=0 this is the answer i'm hoping to see from the calculator: x = 1 + 2i or x = 1  2i I have tried Toolbox>Polynomial>Find Roots (and it gave me 2 as an answer?) Toolbox>Solve>Solve, Zeros, Complex Solve, Complex Zeros Nothing is giving me the answer I want. What am I missing? Why would proot only give me one answer? Thanks so much for your time!
