9-114.

For the polynomial function

*f*(*x*) =*x*^{3}– 5*x*^{2}+ 11*x*– 15, which of the following expressions are possible factors? Homework Help ✎(

*x*+ 1)(

*x*– 2)(

*x*+ 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*?
