List all possible (or potential) rational zeros for the polynomial below. Find all real zeros of the polynomial below and factor completely over the real numbers. Please show all of your work.

f(x) = x^4 - 7x^3 -3x^2 + 19x + 14

Help

trying a few factors of 14, I found

f(-1) = 0 and f(2) = 0

so after 2 consecutive synthetic divisions, that left me with

(x+1)(x-2)((x^2 - 6x - 7)

= (x+1)(x-2)(x+1)(x-7)

so we have a double zero at x=-1

and two more zeros at 2 and 7
