Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1to find the factorization of the polynomial we must first locate the given roots note: the roots are the xvalue (xintercepts)...where the curve/graph cuts the xaxis

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the scale of the xaxis is 2 units to 1..ie... 2,4,6,8,...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1x=4 and x=4 are the roots

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now this question is not asking for the roots ... it really want to know whats the factor before we solve for the root...now to do that we carry over the 4 and 4 over the equal sign... by.... adding 4, and subtracting 4 respectively for the given xintercepts

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so x=4 x+4=0 (x+4) and x=4 x4=0 (x4) so our factorization of the polynomial is (x+4)(x4)=0
