8-122.
  1. Without actually multiplying, decide which of the following polynomials could be the product of (x − 2)(x + 3)(x − 5). Justify your choice. Homework Help ✎

    1. x3 − 4x2 − 11x − 5

    2. 2x3 − 4x2 − 11x + 30

    3. x3 − 4x2 − 11x + 30

    4. 2x3 − 4x2 − 11x − 5

If you expanded the original polynomial, what would be the first term? What would be the last term?
