factor x^3 + 3x^2 + 3x + 2

  • algebra -

    x^3 + 3x^2 + 3x + 2

    let f(x) = x^3 + 3x^2 + 3x + 2
    f(1) = 1+3+3+2 ≠ 0
    f(-1) = -1 + 3 - 3 + 2 ≠0
    f(2) = ..... ≠ 0
    f(-2) = -8 + 12 - 6 + 2 = 0 , so x+2 is a factor
    do a long division to get the remaining quadratic factor.

    I'm trying to solve x^3-3x^2-x+3 is less than zero. Except, I'm not sure how to factor it. I tried splitting it so that 3 would be a factor for 3x^2 and 3, so the result was 3(-x^2+1), and x^2 was a factor for x^3 and -3x^2, resulting …
