If $$x^4+x^3+x^2+x+1=0$$ then what"s the value of $x^5$ ??

I thought it would be $-1$ but it does not satisfy the equation




$x^4+x^3+x^2+x+1 = 0$

Multiply everything by $x$

$x^5+x^4+x^3+x^2+x = 0$

Add $1$ to both sides:

$x^5+x^4+x^3+x^2+x+1 = 1$

$x^5+(x^4+x^3+x^2+x+1) = 1$

$x^5+(0) = 1$



The left side of the equation is $P= (x^4 +x^2) + (x^3 + x) +1 = 2$

In the equation $x^2(x^2+1) +1 > 0$, there is no such real number for $x$. Logically, a false statement implies anything, so $x^5$ = anything you wish .

M Andrews" correct argument above can be modified to lớn see that $x^5-1 =(x-1)(x^4+x^3+x^2+x+1)$, so the roots of $P=0$ are the 4 other complex 5th roots of unity (which are not x=1) namely $x=e^2mpi i/5$, so $m=1,2,3,4$, và so on.

For instance, for $m=1$ $x= cos(2pi/5) + i sin(2pi/5)$ . So $x^5 =1 $, provided you allow complex numbers as roots of P.
