8-122.

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 ✎*x*^{3}− 4*x*^{2}− 11*x*− 52

*x*^{3}− 4*x*^{2}− 11*x*+ 30*x*^{3}− 4*x*^{2}− 11*x*+ 302

*x*^{3}− 4*x*^{2}− 11*x*− 5

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