Jamal wants to know if x−3 is a factor of the polynomial P(x)=x3−7x+6. Jamal calculates P(3) and applies the Factor Theorem to conclude that x−3 is a factor of P(x).

Is he correct? Why or why not?

No, because P(3) is equal to 0.
No, because P(3) is not equal to 0.
Yes, because P(3) is equal to 0.
Yes, because P(3) is not equal to 0.
