Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If x5 factors out of the thing, then you have f(x) = (x5)(something left) if x5=0 then....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry it is f(x) = (x+5)(something else) Put in X= 5 f(5) = 0*(Something) = 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If (x+5) is a factor, then if you let X=5 , that factor will be zero, and multiply the rest of the function by zero f(5) = ...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Right, Say the function is f(x) = (x+5)(x^3+6x4) The x+5 is factored out of the thing... if that quantity is zero, (when x=5 , f(x)=f(5) then the function will also be zero at that location

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If x = 1 is a zero of the polynomial function f(x) = 3x3 − 8x2 + 3x + 2, which of the following is another zero of f(x)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If x=1 is a zero, then you can probably say (x1) will be a factor of f(x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no, that means you can say f(x) = (x1)*(another factor)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When "another factor" = 0 , that will be you other zero(s)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The zeroes are where y=f(x) = 0, crosses x axis
