Homework Help: Math

Posted by Anonymous on Tuesday, April 3, 2012 at 4:13pm.

Factor the polynomial P(x)=x^3-2x^2-13x-10. Then solve the equation P(x)=0.

This is what I got:
P(x)=(x+1)(x^2-3x-10)
P(x)=(x+1)(x-5)(x+2)

When it says solve the equation P(x)=0 does it means solve for x?

If so then x=-1 or 5 or -2 Correct???


please and thank you
