Q:
# PLZ Help fast. It's Pre Calculus. This is the only day i get to spend time with my baby sister. please help fast. WILL MARK BRAINLIEST.Which of the following is a root of the polynomial shown below? Look at the graph of the function and find the solutions.f(x)=x^3+2x^2-x-2a.1b.0c.3d.2Which of the following represents the set of possible rational roots for the polynomial shown below? This question is a review from Algebra 2. Remember that possible rational roots take the form of p/q. Where p is a factor of the constant and q is a factor of the leading coefficient.2x^3+5x^2-8x-20=0

Accepted Solution

A:

1) x³ + 2x² - x - 2 2) 2x³ + 5x² - 8x - 20 = 0

x²(x + 2) - (x + 2) x²(2x + 5) - 4(2x + 5) = 0

(x + 2)(x² - 1) (2x + 5)(x² - 4) = 0

(x + 2)(x - 1)(x + 1) x = -5/2, +-2

x = -2, 1, -1 << a is the answer.

hope that helps, God bless!

x²(x + 2) - (x + 2) x²(2x + 5) - 4(2x + 5) = 0

(x + 2)(x² - 1) (2x + 5)(x² - 4) = 0

(x + 2)(x - 1)(x + 1) x = -5/2, +-2

x = -2, 1, -1 << a is the answer.

hope that helps, God bless!
