    *\[(4-\lambda)[-2\times0-(-6-\lambda)(0-\lambda)]\]\[\qquad-0[-1\times(0-\lambda)-(5\times-2)]\]\[\qquad\qquad+1[-1\times0-(-6-\lambda)]=0\]

    right, i know how to do all the calculations but when you get the the last step: when its all combined how do you know what lamda itself is equal to? ( like, you look at the constant and see its factors or something and do something..idk)_)

    well at the last spet you'll have a bunch of factors =0 so to get zero at least one of the factors is zero

    something like this only i have made mistakes \[(\lambda-4)[(6+\lambda)\lambda]+[6+\lambda]=0\]\[(6\lambda+\lambda^2-24-4\lambda)\lambda+6+\lambda=0\]\[\lambda^3+2\lambda^2-24\lambda+\lambda+6=0\]\[\lambda^3+3\lambda^2-24\lambda+6=0\]\[(\lambda-a)(\lambda-b)(\lambda-c)=0\] lambda would be a,b,c

    but how do you know to break it into a b c?

    how to factorize? you could try polynomial long division

    how would you go about doing this? possibilities: +/- : 1,2,3,5,6,10,30,15

    if you plug in -1, you get =0.then what?

    your expression does factorizes nicely, try dividing by \((\lambda+1)\)

    so\[\lambda^3 +2\lambda^2-29\lambda-30=(\lambda+1)(\lambda^2+\lambda-30)\]
