the roots of the cubic equation
x^3 - 15x^2 + px - 105 = 0
are 5-k, 5 and 5+k
Find the values of the constants p and k
i dont know what to do or how to start please some one help!!
5 is a root so sub 5 into the equation and you will get p.
In a cubic equation starting with x^3 the product of the roots is the constant term, in this case -105 So 5(5-k)(5+k)= -105
