    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

    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
