1. Solve

First sketch the curve .

This appears to have a double root at , and it

checks out that is a root. Then dividing out gives:

,

from which the remaining roots can be found using the quadratic formula on:

.

2. Solve

Use the same method as I suggested for part 1. Sketch the curve, looks

like a root at which checks out as a root. So is a

factor of , so divide it out to leave

a quadratic which can then be solved using the quadratic formula.
