Say I want to solve "x^2 - 7ax + (5+2I)" for x when a \in \mathbb{C}.
How does this happen?
----------
I tried declaring "a" as a complex number using var('a', domain = CC) but that too didn't work.
I am using ".factor()" to factorize. PhoenixMon, 19 Jan 2015 21:14:40 +0100https://ask.sagemath.org/question/25560/
