? and ? are the roots of 2x2 - 5x + 7.
Therefore,
? + ? = 5/2
? ? = 7/2
 
The roots of p(x) are 2? + 3? and 3? + 2?.
So, sum of roots = 5(? + ?) = 25/2
Product of roots = (2? + 3?)(3? + 2?)
Simplify this expression and put the values of ? + ? and ??.
 
The polynomial p(x) will be given as:
x2 - (sum of roots)x + product of roots
