As zero remainder is received for the synthetic division by -4, x = -4 is zero and (x+4) is the factor of the given polynomial. However, the subsequent division by 2 produced the non-zero remainder. x=2 is not a zero.
a) For f(x) = 2x 3 -5x2-4x+3 from the Rational roots test we can suggest that +/-3 (multiple of the factor 3/2) can be the possible solutions. Using synthetic division we find that x=3 is a zero of the polynomial:
