    Find the polynomials roots to each of the following problems: #1) x^2+3x+1 #2) x^2+4x+3=0 #3) -2x^2+4x-5 #3 is not an equation. Dod you omit "= 0" at the end? #2 can be factored into (x+1)(x+3) = 0, so the roots are x=-1 and -3.

    Still looking at how to solve these... Both are cubic polynomials? 43x^3 + 13x^2 + 18x - 456 = 0 DO I divide first by x-1? 2x(3x+2)^2=312 Honestly: I would graph the equations and find the roots first. I don't see them off hand.
