\[\large -8x^3-17x^2+7x=0\]See how EVERY term has an X in it? Let's start by factoring an X out of each term.\[\large x(-8x^2-17x+7)=0\]

I know they said to solve by GRAPHING, but I'm not exactly sure how you would go about doing that. Do they mean by using a calculator?

Anyway doing it this way, if we apply the Zero Factor Property, we'll set each factor equal to 0 giving us,\[\large x=0 \qquad \text{and}\qquad -8x^2-17x+7=0\]

From here, we can immediately cancel out two of the options, because it has to be one of the choices with x=0.

To find the other two roots, we can throw the quadratic part into the Quadratic Formula.\[\large ax^2+bx+c=0 \qquad \rightarrow \qquad x=\frac{-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a}\]

\[\large -8x^2-17x+7=0 \qquad \rightarrow \qquad x=\frac{17 \pm \sqrt{17^2-4(-8)(7)}}{2(-8)}\]

Hopefully I plugged that in correctly. You can punch that into your calculator and hopefully get something that's listed :O
