Get you started you have to start by guessing

X=3 works

Then do long division

Answer will be x^2+12x+36

Factor

(X+6)(x+6)

3and -6 are your critical values

Now you have to test the different regions

Just pick a number in the region

Plug back into the function

Neg ans means less than 0

Pos ans means greater than 0
