1. I suggest you start by using the rational roots theorem to find at least one root. You will learn more by making the effort yourself.

3. The theorem says that if there is a rational root, it is (in this case) a factor of 22, which are one or more ofthese:
+/1, +/-2, +/-11 or +/-22.

See if any of those work.

5. x = 2 is a solution and (x-2) is a factor.

The other factor is
(x^3+10x^2-13x-22)/(x-2)

Polynomial long division will reduce that to a quadratic.
