well, disallowing x = 1 because that would cause division by zero, just solve
x^3 + 3x^2  2x + 7 = 11x + 11
x^3 + 3x^2  13x  4 = 0
cubics aren't easy to solve in general, so look first for lowhanging fruit: +/ 1,2,4
Hmm. No joy there. Some iterative method, or wolframalpha will provide the three real roots:
5.3, 0.3, 2.6
If the answer is 11, there's a typo somewhere in the problem. f(11) = 139.9
