Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, so is the group x = 3, x = 1, and x = 2 a possibility?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Since this is a third degree polynomial, there can only be three. And since you know one is 2, use synthetic division to find the others. Yes, the group you listed is certainly a possibility.
