-5x^3 + 24x^2 - 36x + 16
Then apply the Rational Roots Test to obtain a list of possible whole-number and fractions zeroes. You should get:
. . . . .
Since whole numbers are easier, start trying whole-number solutions, such as -1 and +4, by synthetic division.
Once you've found one zero, you can plug the remaining quadratic into the Quadratic Formula to complete the solution.
