We need to determine if $$x-5$$ is a factor of $$2x^{3} - 4x^{2} - 7x - 10$$

2021-01-09
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.

A security pays a yearly dividend of 7€ during 5 years, and on the 5th year we could sell it at a price of 75€, market rate is 19%, risk free rate 2%, beta 1,8. What would be its price today? 2.1 And if its dividend growths 1,7% each year along these 5 years-what would be its price?
A security pays a constant dividend of 0,90€ during 5 years and thereafter will be sold at 10 €, market rate 18%, risk free rate 2,5%, beta 1,55, what would be its price today?
At what price have i purchased a security if i already made a 5€ profit, and this security pays dividends as follows: first year 1,50 €, second year 2,25€, third year 3,10€ and on the 3d year i will sell it for 18€. Market rate is 8%, risk free rate 0,90%, beta=2,3.

The accompanying two-way table was constructed using data in the article “Television Viewing and Physical Fitness in Adults” (Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 1990: 315–320). The author hoped to determine whether time spent watching television is associated with cardiovascular fitness. Subjects were asked about their television-viewing habits and were classified as physically fit if they scored in the excellent or very good category on a step test. We include MINITAB output from a chi-squared analysis. The four TV groups corresponded to different amounts of time per day spent watching TV (0, 1–2, 3–4, or 5 or more hours). The 168 individuals represented in the first column were those judged physically fit. Expected counts appear below observed counts, and MINITAB displays the contribution to $$\displaystyle{x}^{{{2}}}$$ from each cell.
