first see if you can guess and root by hit and trial?

Im familiar if you factor just one number out of everything, but i think you need to factor out two different numbers. @harsimran_hs4

2 is one of the root of the equation so can you write this as (x+2) * polynomial tell me that polynomial

@Presleyram i expect that you also take a initiative in solving the question rather than me doing it alone

agreed so now it becomes (x+3)(x+2) (some quadratic polynomial) do you know how to find this quadratic polynomial?

@harsimran_hs4 do you take a 6 out since there's a 36

no you can`t (x+3)(x+2) = (x^2 + 5x + 6) dw:1361982840767:dw

original polynomial is x4 + x3 – 8x2 + 6x + 36

this division is tricky so think over it with cool mind and in the end remainder must be zero so find out take your time and then reply

@harsimran_hs4 I got (x+2)(x+3)(x24x+6) for the final answer

great!! so now to factorize x^2 4x + 6 is not factorisable because the discriminant of this equation is ve i.e it results in complex( non real) roots (although i think you already figured that out) so final answer is (x+2)(x+3)(x24x+6)
