Simply plug in x=5 to the equation I found x=5 by doing this: (x5)=0,
x=52(5)34(4)27(5)10=0
If this is true then x5 is a factor.
They are not equal so x5 is not a factor.

Evaluate fraction of sum
So i have to evaluate this sum:
122+4252+7282+102112+1+224252+72+82102112+
it has the form : 0[(3n+1)2(3n+2)2]0(1)n[(3n+1)2+(3n+2)2]
My current attempt : Trying to convert this into power series
a(n)=(3n+1)2(3n+2)2      b(n)=(3n+1)2+(3n+2)2
Can a(n) and b(n) be the definite integral of certain polynomial function f(x) ?
Maybe there is a better direction. Can someone give me a hint ?
