I keep getting just x^2 then I don't know what to doAnswer by Alan3354(34679)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!(x^3-7x^2+4x+12); (x-2) use subsitution to tell whether the given binomial is a factor of the polynomial. ----------------- Sub 2 for x. If f(2)=0, then x-2 is a factor f(x) = x^3-7x^2+4x+12 f(2) = 2^3 - 7*2^2 + 4*2 + 12 = 8 - 28 + 8 + 12 = 0 ------- x-2 is a factor.
