9-114.

For the polynomial function $f\left(x\right) = x^{3} – 5x^{2} + 11x – 15$, which of the following expressions are possible factors?

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

1. $( x + 1 )$

1. $( x - 2 )$

1. $( x + 4 )$

1. $( x - 3 )$
