hey guys, I just have a quick question. I'm solving polynomial equations like 15x^3-119x^2-10x+16=0. apparently u can cheat on the calculator and find that a factor is (x-8). How do I do this on my calculator?

    I just don't get how to find the x-8 faster. Once you get that u box the 8 up as the divisor. Then with the leftovers, simply factor like a normal quadratic.
