9-114.
  1. For the polynomial function f(x) = x3 – 5x2 + 11x – 15, which of the following expressions are possible factors? Homework Help ✎

    1. (x + 1)

    2. (x – 2)

    3. (x + 4)

    4. (x – 3)

The factored form of f(x) will be (x ± a)(x ± b)(x ± c).
What must be true about the product of a, b, and c?
