I am totally stuck on a problem (mid year final review) and I can't find help anywhere on the internet. Could someone help me understand how to go about solving the problem? I know that there are 3 different questions here, but they are all related. I'm stressing out about this test in a big way so I would HUGELY appreciate a little help so I can move past this problem and start studying something else. I can't figure out how to do exponents here, so the small #s are exponents.
Given: f(x)=X3 - X2 - 2X
a) what is the degree of the function
b) How many zeros does this function have
c) Factor the function to find its three factors
