1. ANS:

Use synthetic substitution to find :

The last number in the bottom row of the synthetic substitution array is . Since , is a factor of . The coefficients of the quotient when is divided by are the first three numbers in the bottom row of the synthetic substitution array. So, . Factoring the quadratic factor by inspection gives , the complete factorization of .
