Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I set the function to zero Then i factored and got two terms. Next i applied the zero product property and i found the roots, by that i mean that i set each term term to zero and solved for x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Are you sure it's 2x^3 – 9x + 3? The roots are nasty. but suppose they are r1, r2, r3, then of course 2x^3 – 9x + 3 = 2(xr1)(xr2)(xr3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You probably should try finding the roots by using some numerical methods, which will give you approximated values of the roots.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If I were you, I would start by plotting the polynomial to help me have a general view of the function and where the zeros might be. Then, I would use a method like Newton's method to approximate the roots.
