Verify factors: x^4-4x^3-7x^2+22x+24 (x+2) (x-3) ( i think this just means factors of 1 and 24???) then find fully factored form (which I think means synthetic division) HELP Please :)

    you need to show that (x+2) and (x-3) are factors of the equation given. (x+2) is a factor if x=-2 produces the value zero for the given equation. similarly, (x-3) is a factor if x=3 produces the value zero for the equation.
