factorise x^3-4x62-11x+2

• maths -

check your typing, I suspect a typo.

• maths -

x^3-4x62-11x+2
since ^ is shift-6, I suspect you meant:

x^3-4x^2-11x+2

cubics are not generally easy to solve, so look for easy integral roots first: ±1, ±2

A little synthetic division yields

(x+2)(x^2-6x+11)

Using the quadratic formula, you get
x = 3±2√2

so, the factorisation is

(x+2)(x-3-2√2)(x-3+2√2)
