# numpy.roots() function – Python

• Last Updated : 11 Jun, 2020

`numpy.roots()` function return the roots of a polynomial with coefficients given in p. The values in the rank-1 array p are coefficients of a polynomial. If the length of p is n+1 then the polynomial is described by: p * x**n + p * x**(n-1) + … + p[n-1]*x + p[n]

Syntax : numpy.roots(p)

Parameters :
p : [array_like] Rank-1 array of polynomial coefficients.

Return : [ndarray] An array containing the roots of the polynomial.
