No. I could be remembering wrong. I didn't actually have to factor it. The question was about finding a slant asymptote. I assumed there was factoring. But it was too hard, so I just used my TI 84 to graph it, then found the asymptote through trial and error. (It was a multiple choice question...
These aren't homework questions. They were on a test I had today.
The first was how do I factor 2x^3-3x^2-16x-5. I'm fairly certain that's right. It was actually part of a larger problem, involving finding a slant asymptote. I just used my graphing utility to find the answer, but I'd like to...
