# POLQ 3 | Lesson 2 |Try This! (Factors and Zeros of Polynomial Equations) Solutions

Solution:

1. $$(x+1)$$ is a factor.  The other factor is $$3x^2+8x-3$$.  This can be further factored into $$(3x-1)(x+3)$$.

The solutions are then $$-1$$, $$\dfrac{1}{3}$$ and $$-3$$

1. No, as factors of one polynomial are factors of its multiples as well.
