Just use the rational root theorem here, I get, x=-5,-1,3 for the first one.

3. For the second just factor.
$x^2 \left( {x - 3} \right) + 4\left( {x - 3} \right) = \left( {x^2 + 4} \right)\left( {x - 3} \right) = 0.$

Is that the full answer?

No! You have to finish the solution.
I, unlike some here, do not give out ready to turn in answers.
Sorry, but I think you should do some work for yourself.
