1 -12 28 -9 0 <-- add these ------------- x ) 1 <- multiply these your "x" will be whatever you wanna test for a zero

1 -12 28 -9 0 3 -27 3 ------------- 3 ) 1 -9 1 -6: -6 is NOT a zero so "3" is out

1 -12 28 -9 0 -3 45 ------------- -3 ) 1 -15 ...... this aint gonna zero out either

1 -12 28 -9 0 9 -27 9 ------------- 9 ) 1 -3 1 0 : x=9 works as a zero

x^2 -3x +1 is a quadratic form now that can be done with the quad formula if need be

If guess that one of the roots is rational, the possible roots from the rational root theorem are ±1 , ±3 , ±9. If I try x = 9, I find that f(9) = 0. x^3 - 12x^2 + 28x - 9 = (x-9)(x^2 - 3x + 1) Using the quadratic formula, the other 2 solutions are (3 ± sqrt(9-4))/2 = (3 ± sqrt(5))/2 Solutions to f(x) = 0 : 9 , (3 + sqrt(5))/2 , (3 - sqrt(5))/2
