9-123.

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

Polynomial (c) because (−2)(3)(−5) = 30 and (*x*)(*x*)(*x*) = *x*^{3} not 2*x*^{3}.
