Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I notice that these are all cubics. So I would first try to factor by grouping and if that doesn't work, then try synthetic division.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how do i do synthetic division with no divisor or watever its called?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Let's look at the first one.. The constant term is 16 and the coefficient of the x^3 term is 15. So the possible rational roots are the factors of 16 over the factors of 15 Use those for your "shelf" numbers in the synthetic division process. If you get a remainder of 0, that number is a root.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So the possible rational roots are:\[\pm1, \pm2,\pm4,\pm8,\pm16,\pm1/3,\pm1/5,\pm1/15,\pm2/3,\pm4/3,\pm8/3,\pm16/3,\pm2/5,\pm4/5\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So we see that 8 is a root and (x8)(15x^2+x2) are factors.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Take the second factor 15x^2+x2 and use the quadratic formula on it and find the other roots.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I actually cheated and used a graphing calculator to find the 8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No that is not the answer. The 3 answers are 8 and whatever you get when you solve 15x^2+x2=0
