To justify the answer do you need to make a sin chart and graph it?

How do you solve third degree polynom? Do you know what rational root Theorem is?

Hi Raerin!

The usual approach is to first solve the equality.

Then take the derivative and find its roots.

Then you can make a sign chart to read off the solution (did you mean a sign chart instead of a sin chart?)

The first step is already not so easy for this particular problem.

Do you know of it?

AsPetrussuggested, the easiest way to find the roots is by using the Rational root theorem.

Oops, I made a typo, so yes, I do mean sign chart.

You're supposed to bring everything to one side, right? Then you find the number that would make the polynomial = 0?
