Long Division
Use long division when a polynomial is divided by a binomialFactor Theorem
factor `(P(x))/(xa)` only if `P(a)=0`Since the polynomial is in cubic form, we can graph it by finding its zeroes then sketching the curve along.First, factor out the polynomial completely using Factor TheoremTry out numbers that divide to the constant term which is `20` as the value of `a` then substitute into the polynomial`20` can be divided by: `+` `1,2,4,5,10,20`Trying out `a=2`:`P(x)` `=` `x^32x^219x+20` `P(a)` `=` `a^32a^219a+20` Replace `x` with `a` `P(2)` `=` `2^32(2)^219(2)+20` Substitute `a=2` `=` `82(4)38+20` `=` `8838+20` `=` `18` Since `P(2)≠0`, `(x2)` is not a factor of the polynomialTrying out `a=1`:`P(x)` `=` `x^32x^219x+20` `P(a)` `=` `a^32a^219a+20` Replace `x` with `a` `P(1)` `=` `1^32(1)^219(1)+20` Substitute `a=1` `=` `12(1)19+20` `=` `1219+20` `=` `0` Since `P(1)=0`, `(x1)` is the first factor of the polynomialFind the second factor using Long Division.Substitute components into the formula$$\mathsf{P}$$(Polynomial) `=` `x^32x^219x+20` $$\mathsf{Divisor}$$ `=` `x1` `=` Next, solve for each term of the quotientFirst term of the quotient:Divide the first term of the Polynomial by the first term of the Divisor. Place this above the Polynomial`x^3dividex` `=` `x^2` Multiply `x^2` to the divisor. Place this under the Polynomial`x^2``(x1)` `=` `x^3x^2` Subtract `x^3x^2` and write the difference one line belowDrop down `19x` and repeat the process to get the second term of the quotientSecond term of the quotient:Divide the first term of the bottom expression by the first term of the Divisor. Place this above the Polynomial`x^2dividex` `=` `x` Multiply `x` to the divisor. Place this one line below`x``(x1)` `=` `x^2+x` Subtract `x^2+x` and write the difference one line belowDrop down `20` and repeat the process to get the third term of the quotientThird term of the quotient:Divide the first term of the bottom expression by the first term of the Divisor. Place this above the Polynomial`20xdividex` `=` `20` Multiply `20` to the divisor. Place this under the Polynomial`20``(x1)` `=` `20x+20` Subtract `20x+20` and write the difference one line belowSince `r=0` and cannot be divided anymore, the quotient is `x^2x20`So far, we have factored the polynomial as `(x1)``(x^2x20)`Factor out the polynomial further by applying cross method`(x1)(x^2x20)``(x1)(x+4)(x5)`Notice that in this form, we can easily get the zeroes of the cubic curve.Find the zeroes of the curve by equating the factorised polynomial to `0` and solving each value of `x``(x1)(x+4)(x5)` `=` `0` First `x` value:`x1` `=` `0` `x1` `+1` `=` `0``+1` Add `1` to both sides `x` `=` `1` Second `x` value:`x+4` `=` `0` `x+4` `4` `=` `0` `4` Subtract `4` from both sides `x` `=` `4` Third `x` value:`x5` `=` `0` `x5` `+5` `=` `0` `+5` Add `5` to both sides `x` `=` `5` Hence, the zeroes will be at `x=1,4,5`Finally, graph the cubic curve over the zeroes. Note that since the coefficient of the `x^3` term is positive, the curve should start from the bottom left
