each problem by following these steps:
- Use Rational Roots Theorem to find potential rational roots.
Possible roots = , where p represents factors of the constant term and
q represents factors of the leading coefficient.
- Use synthetic division, or long division, to find an actual root.
- Repeat step 2 until the polynomial is of degree 2.
- Factor the remaining quadratic polynomial.
- List all factors for “completely factored form”.
