write out a synthetic division table like so 4  3 5 5 5 2   First step is to drop the first coefficient 3 4  3 5 5 5 2   3 Then multiply that by 4 to get 12. Write this under the first 5 4  3 5 5 5 2  12  3 Add the 5 and 12 to get 7 and write it under the 12 4  3 5 5 5 2  12  3 7 Repeat the last two steps to get 4  3 5 5 5 2  12 28  3 7 23 Keep going until the table is finished

since 4 is positive and the entire bottom row is positive, this means that 4 is definitely an upper bound of the zeros of f(x).
