So the polynomial I have is
so then I find the factors of the constant and the leading coefficient
So from here I can divide by
If I start with that means I divide through the polynomial with 1 not - 1. this is where I start to get mixed up.
I divide 1 through and get a 0 and whats left is . so because this is now in standard form I can factor from here to get and combined with my original divisor of , I get
The problem is I was told that because I get I should be able to divide by x-1 once and then through another again to find another zero because I have two factors of .
I got a pro wolfram|alpha account but the step by step solution didn't explain if very well, it explained it in a way that assumes you already understand and .
