the polynomisl function.Use the zeros to factor f over the real numbers.

f(x)=x^4+2x^33-7x^2-8x+12

what are the real zeros?>

use the real zeros to factor f

f(x)=

**Reiny**, Thursday, January 10, 2013 at 7:59amTry values of x = ±1, ±2, ±3, ±4, ±6

hint: x = 1 and x = 2 worked for me

so (x-1) and (x-2) are factors

do either long algebraic division or synthetic division to find the other two factors.
