If 2x+7 then 2(x+7/2) are factors 

and thes means that

 

f(-7/2)=0

 

Do the substitution and find the answer for yourself.

 

 

Please no one do more of the working.

I anyone, including Lightning has a question, they will ask.

Thanks.

You didn't solve anything, Wolfram|alpha did.

LOL!!!!!

 

Lightning solved it by NOT solving it......!!!!!

 

Which brings to mind the old paradox...."If every man in the village who is not the barber shaves himself.....who shaves the barber ? "

 

 

cool cool cool

Anyone or noone could shave the barber. 

The statement says notihng in relation to the barber himself.
