cubic function factoring
Hi. I have to factor a cubic function expression for homework and it just has me stomped.
x^3 - x^2 -5x -3
currently i have x+1 and x-3 as a factor (I did long division and got 0R for both of them but i cant figure out the third factor.
Appreciate any help
thanks =) i actually got that answer but for some reason it doesnt foil out to the original equation =x maybe doing math @ 2 in the morning after physics and chemistry is not a good idea. Thanks alot though
nope, not a good idea. but sometimes you have to do what you have to do. like me, for instance, i have to pull an all-nighter tonight
