\noindent This first HW is worth 15 points and is due next Friday, September 9. It's pretty simple.
\noindent \textbf{The Problem}: Solve the equation
$$z^{10} - 31z^5 - 32 = 0$$
and sketch the solutions in the complex plane.
\noindent What could be easier?
\subsection*{Requirements}
\begin{itemize}
\item Your solution must be typed in \LaTeX\ and the sketch should be electronically produced.
\item It's fine with me if you consult a computational tool. However, your turned in solution should
be self-contained and clearly indicate \textit{why} the solutions lie where they do in the complex plane.
\end{itemize}
