The factor theorem states that a polynomial f(x) has a factor (x − k) if and only if f(k) = 0. So if (x+2) is a factor of P(x), then P(-2)=0. Since P(-2)= 21, it is clear that (x+2) is not a factor of P(x)=2x^4+x^3-3x-9.

Sorry, the last paragraph is not clear. If f(a0)=0, then (x-a0) is a factor of f(a). So check and see which of f(1),f(2)...=0 and hence find a rational factor of f(a). If f(-1)=0, then (a+1) is a factor. Do a long division and factor the remaining quadratic.

consider a simpler case: x^5 + 2x^3 + 5x^2 the common factor is x^2, that is, the power with the smallest exponent, so x^2(x^3 + 2x + 5) how did we get the terms inside ? We subtracted the exponent of the common factor from the original exponent. now to our question, (x+4)^-3/...

factor or use quadratic formula i prefer factoring but somethings cant be factor like this one you cant factor it so use quadratic formula -b plus or minus the square root of (b^2 -4AC) all of that divided by 2A A= 1(bc of the 1 in front of the x^2) b= 14( from the 14x) C=-4

If b is an integer factor of b, and b is an integer factor of x, then b = ma and c = nb, where m and n are both integers. It follows that c = m n a. Since m and n are both integers, so is mn. Therefore a is an integer factor of c, or, in other words, "a divides c".

Since x is a known factor, you will have to divide each term in the binomial by the known factor to get the other factor. 7x²/x = 7x x/x = 1 So 7x²+x = x(7x+1)

to get the greatest common factor, we first find the factors of each number (we call it a factor of a certain number if that certain number is divisible by the factor or it gives zero remainder when divided by the factor),, for example, 10 has factors 1, 2, 5 and 10, because ...

Greatest Common factors
I dont know these answers. Can you help me? Greatest common factor in 1.6y^2-9y+18. 2.4x^2y-7xy 3. 30a^3b-40ab^3 4. factor out greatest common factor in 4x^2-12x+20 5. x^4y-6x^3y-6x^2y 4 and 5 are factoring out the greatest common and 1-4 is finding the greastest common factor.

3ax^2 - 27a You can factor that into 3a (x^2 - 9), which also equals 3a(x-3)(x+3). It is not clear from your question what you are supposed to do with that algebraic expression. If it were equal to zero, x would be +3 or -3. If you are expected to factor, try factoring out 3a ...

6x^6 + 13x^3 - 5 let u = x^3 6u^2 + 13u -5 = (3u -1)(2u +5) Which is the same as (3x^3 -1)(2x^3 + 5) That leaves you with two cubics to factor. One of the factors of (3x^3 -1) is (3^1/3)*x -1 (I am using "3^1/3)" to denote "cube root of"). The other factor is ( [3^2/3)x^2 + (3...

Since the force is k/r^2 Then if r is multiplied by a factor of a, the new force is k/(ar)^2 = k/r^2 / a^2 So, you have multiplied the distance r by a factor of 23/6. Consequently, the force is reduced by a factor of (23/6)^2.

When simplifying a rational fraction, why do you need to factor the numerator and the denominator? If there is a common factor in both the numerator and denominator, that factor will cancel, thus simplifying the fraction. e.g. 15/18 = (3*5)/3*6) =(3/3)*(5/6) =(1)*5/6 =5/6

I would factor out 3/16 to get (3/16)(48x^2 - 16x + 3) the trinomial does not factor If you meant: (3x^2 - 3x + 9)/16 then = (3/16)(x^2 - x + 3) again the trinomial does not factor, but notice how important brackets become ?
