(x – 1)(x – 1)(x - 4)
3
(x – 1)(2x + 1)(x + 3)

p = -7
5
4p + 2q = 78; p – q = -15 solve to give p=8 and q = 23
6
Roots are x=-3 , 2 and 5/2
7
(x – 3)(2x + 1)(x + 4)
8
(x-2)(2x2+x+4) = 0 So x = 2 is a root and there are no more roots
because you cannot take the square root of a negative number
which occurs when you apply the quadratic formula.
9
K = 3 ; So this gives f(x) = (x – 2)(x + 3)(x + 2)
10
(x – 1)(x –5)(x + 2)
