Give an example of a polynomial with degree 3 such that when factored, it contains the two factors (x+5) and (2x-1), i.e., the polynomial looks like (x+5) (2x -1) ( ? ).

How many such polynomials you think there are?

what is wrong with any factor containing an x? x-4; x-1; x; and so on. Maybe I am missing something.

• algebra question -

Now I get it. Put any factor with an x in it as the last term, then multiply the three factors.

okay thanks I'll try it
