a) Find the depressed equation using synthetic division and the root given. Factor out any constants that may appear.

b) Factor the depressed equation (which is now a quadratic) using any method EXCEPT synthetic division.

c) List all the roots for f(x)

**drwls**, Monday, June 2, 2008 at 11:33pmYou get the "depressed equation" by dividing

3x^3 + 10x^2 - 16x - 32 by the factor already. This is a skil you need to learn.

x + 4. Read up on how to do synthetic division if you don't know already. Show your work if you need additional help.

The depressed quadratic equation (if f(x) - 0) is

3x^2 -2x -8 = 0

That does not factor easily
