Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So how would I then completely factor it out in order to get a positive and negative number?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Not sure what you mean, but you could factor \(\Large x^25\) further \[\Large x^25\] \[\Large x^2\left(\sqrt{5} \right )^2\] \[\Large \left(x\sqrt{5} \right )\left(x+\sqrt{5} \right )\] So \[\Large (x^25)(3x+1)\] then becomes \[\Large \left(x\sqrt{5} \right )\left(x+\sqrt{5} \right )(3x+1)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0see @AudrianaS dear ..............ans. is 5/2 ,+5/2 and 1/3.. you must know that alternating sign. of solution is the property of cubic eqn.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@manishsatywali Yeah I know it is 5/2 and +5/2 but I dont know about 1/3. I can see how you got it, but its just not in the book

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3There should be 3 solutions and they are x = 1/3, x = sqrt(5), or x = sqrt(5)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3I would double check the problem. Notice how you have a cubic equation. So if you have 2 real roots, then you must also have a 3rd real root.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yesh it just says, factor completely: 3x^3+x^215x5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Well if you're just factoring over the rationals, then you would stop at (x^25)(3x+1)
