Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0these are the answers Yes. When the function f(x) = 2x3 + 17x2  64 is divided by x  8, the remainder is zero. Therefore, x  8 is a factor of f(x) = 2x3 + 17x2  64. No. When the function f(x) = 2x3 + 17x2  64 is divided by x  8, the remainder is zero. Therefore, x  8 is not a factor of f(x) = 2x3 + 17x2  64. Yes. When the function f(x) = 2x3 + 17x2  64 is divided by x  8, the remainder is not zero. Therefore, x  8 is a factor of f(x) = 2x3 + 17x2  64. No. When the function f(x) = 2x3 + 17x2  64 is divided by x  8, the remainder is not zero. Therefore, x  8 is not a factor of f(x) = 2x3 + 17x2  64.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Put x=8 in the function or in other words evaluate f(8) if it equates to zero then it is a solution

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4you actually don't have to put this in a calculator to check \[f(8)=2(8)^3+17(8)^28^2=8^2(2(8)+171)=8^2(16+171)\]
