Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2bad green grumble, and no steps shown the first step for me her is just to check some simple numbers\[\pm1\pm2\dots\]and see if you get lucky

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2If you want to think about it you can use the rational root theorem (which tells you to check integers +/1,2,3,4,12), but I just check without thinking sometimes :P

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Turning test is trolling lol. This is to easy to basically show steps. When you have the answers subsitute them in the problem. So like 2 is one of the answers, subsitute x with 2 and do the work.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2not really sure what you mean by that, just trying to explain the process... so yeah, plug in x=1 (it's not a zero) so then try x=2 (it is a zero) that tells you that (x2) is a factor of your polynomial, so you can synthetically divide the polynomial by (x2) and get a cubicdw:1329681838055:dwthen repeat the process until you get a quadratic, which you can solve by a number of (hopefully known) methods.
