First we need to write the factors of the polynomial. In order for 1, 4, and -3 to be roots, they need to be the x values that make the polynomial equal 0.

(x - 1) = 0

That would be the factor for x = 1 because when we plug 1 in for x we get 1 - 1 which equals 0.

Multiply all the factors together.

(x-1)(x-4)(x+3)=0

Now FOIL.

Expanded form pretty much means that you break down every digit into an addition phrase. So, for 418,832, that would mean:

4 1 8 8 3 2

400000 10000 8000 800 30 2

400000+10000+8000+800+30+2

16.5 degrees below the starting temp, whatever that is. If its 0, then -16.5 degrees.

The first equation would be (.5)5-11=-8.5, because the metal has been cooling for 5 hours.

The device that 'aids' in the cooling would be -5-3=-8, because it is a separate variable that cools the metal, so the amount the device cools is independent of the natural cooling amount, and the equation is independent of the natural cooling equation.

You then add -8.5 and -8, because the device has lowered 8.5 degrees and 8 degrees. This equals -16.5 degrees, or a decrease of 16.5 degrees.
