How do you factor x-5x^3-6x^3? Thanks!

asked by Jaz
  1. first of all add up the two cubic terms
    x-5x^3-6x^3
    = x - 11x^3
    = x(1 - 11x^2)

    I have a sneaking suspicion that you have a typo in your expression.

    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,

    this is what u do on your first problem....first u take out the greatest common factor that would go into all of them... 4n^2-20n+24...now what number will go into all of them...well 4 will...4 will go into 4,20,and 24...so. it
