solve the equation x^3-5x^2-4x+20=0 I need a hint on how to solve this Look for the first root by graphical means or trial-and-error. Note that when x=2, x^3-5x^2-4x+20 = 8-20 -8 +20 = 0. Therefore 2 is one root and x-2 is a factor. Next, divide x-2 into

use factor theorem to determine whether x+2 is a factor of f(x). if it is, write f(x) in factored form. f(x)=9x^3+24x^2+19x+14; x+2

## factoring,math

can someone show me how to factor this: i keep getting -6 and 5 but i want to factor: x^2+7x+6 x^2+7x+6 = (x+1)(x+6) This means the roots of x^2+7x+6 = 0 ar -1 and -6 duhhhhh...i was thinking completely wrong..thank you 75 75

## Factoring

Factor Completely: 3t^3 + 5t^2 - 12t first take out the t so you have: t(3t^2 + 5t - 12) you should be able to factor it easily from there-- what numbers multiply to get (12 x 3) 36 and add to get 5? 4 and 9. so, you will take 9 and 4 and replace it with

Help! I think I am right, but not sure. Factor out greatest common factor then simplify the factors 15wx-20wy-25wz= 5w(3x)+5w(-4y)+5w(-5z)= 5w(3w-4y-5z)= 5w

how do you factor 16x^4 - 40x^2 + 9 I don't understand how the factoring should go. When I think of a way to factor it it doesn't turn out right.

How do you change the function f(x)=x^3 so that it is stretched horizontally by a factor of five? What about strethching the square root of x by a factor of four? Thanks everyone.

factor completely. remember to look first for a common factor. if a polynomial is prime state this. x^2+2xy+y^2-9
