Determining the factors of the equation, x^3+12x^2-2x+24, will be given by
X(x^2+12x-2)+24, we can form a function 0 = X(x^2+12x-2)+24, so the first value of x =0
The next values of x will be given by breaking down the function, x^2+12X-2, thus after solving the values, the values of x= 2 and x=-3
Which shows one way to determine the factors of x3 – 12x2 – 2x + 24 by grouping?
x3 + 12x2 -2x -24
(x2-2) • (x)
(x2-2) • (12)
(x2-2) • (-x+12)
