Therefore no, is not a factor of John My calculator said it, I believe it, that settles it Answer by Alan3354(30993)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!is x-1 a factor of (x^567-3x^400+x^9+2) --------- If it's a factor, then subbing +1 for x will make the polynomial zero. 1^567 - 3*1^400 + 1^9 + 2 = 1 - 3 + 1 + 2 = 1, not zero. --> not a factor.
