Simply plug in \(x=5\) to the equation I found \(x=5\) by doing this: \((x-5)=0\),
\(x= 5 2(5)^{3}-4(4)^{2}-7(5)-10=0\)
If this is true then \(x-5\) is a factor.
They are not equal so \(x-5\) is not a factor.
0

Some friends were playing darts decided to impose a 4-point penalty for each dart that missed the dart board completely. During the evening, a boy had 3 darts in the 20-point section, 6 darts in the triple-15-point section, and 2 darts in the double-10-point section. He missed the dart board completely 4 times. How many points did the boy score?
