I get (x-2)(x^3 + 8 x^2 + 5 x - 14) now 14 is either 14 and 1 or 7 and 2 2 does not work this time :( try -2 -8 + 32 -10 - 14 =-24+24 = 0 CARAMBA !!! X = -2 IS A SOLUTION SO (x+2)(x-2) so far divide x^3+8x^2+5x-14 by (x+2)

**algebra**

well, 28 has to have factors 2 14 4 7 lets try 2 and -2 16 + 48 -44 - 48 +28 lo and behold = 0 so x = 2 is a solution and (x-2) is a factor so divide that mess by (x-2) I get with long division (to be continued :)
