Hi guys, I need to find all the complex roots of X^4 - Sqrt(6) + 7/4 using Galois Theory. I have books containing all the theory but can not find a worked example to see how this theory is applied. Any help on how to answer this question would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

Galois theory is only needed for quintics and above. $\\x^4 - (\sqrt{6} -\frac 74) = 0 \\(x^2-\sqrt{\sqrt{6} -\frac 74})(x^2 + \sqrt{\sqrt{6} -\frac 74}) = 0$ The second factor has the two imaginary roots $x= \pm i \sqrt[4]{\sqrt{6} -\frac 74} \approx \pm 0.914524485\:i$

Oh....ok, thanks aswoods- well the question says using Galois Theory. :-s The second part says, also using Galois Theory, find all the complex roots of X^4+1/2X^2-2X+7/4 & calculate the Galois Group of the quartic X^4-2X^2+4X-2. Any ideas? Thanks.
