## Homework Statement

The

*x*coordinates of the points of intersection of the curve

**y = x^3 - 2x^2 - 5x**and a certain straight line give the solutions to the equation

**x^3 - 2x^2 - 6x + 1 = 0**. Find the equation of the straight line.

## The Attempt at a Solution

To be honest, I have no idea as to how I'd even approach this question, other than maybe try to first find solutions for

**x^3 - 2x^2 - 6x + 1 = 0**which I havn't been told how to do. Nor have I been told how to do this type of question either, grrrrrrr. I wish my stupid textbook showed working for the answers...

hope you can help
