divide everything by two. after that, it really doesnt get much more simplified than a basic polynomial. you sure you dont mean to SOLVE that or to FACTOR that?

Put that shit in your calculator to get a zero that is also a possible factor and then do long division or synthetic division to get a factor. Then factor the left over trinomial.

That probably didn't make much sense to you...


no. not at all.

no seriously i did understand, and yes. use a calculator. thats what they are there for.

yeah i divided everything by 2, but yes, i need to factor from there....sorry

it's:

2(2x^3 - x^2 - 18x + 9)

I just finished factoring, way to give me that thign I suck most at.

f*ck factoring, look in the back of your textbook.

because it factors to (2x-1)(x-3)(x+3)

so your solutions are x= 1/2, 3, -3

divide by 2 then group

4x^3 - 2x^2 - 36x +18 = 0

2(2x^3-x^2) + (-18x +9)

2(x^2(2x - 1) - 9(2x - 1)

2(x^2 - 9)(2x - 1)

^squares

2(x-3)(x+3)(2x-1)
