For the life of me I cannot figure out how to factor higher order equations so that I can find the poles and zeros, my professor will not show how to do it and expects everyone to already know how, but i have forgotten and cannot find anywhere on the web to show a one and done method, please help!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

here is one of the equations

x^6+24x^5+247x^4+1518x^3+5487x^2+10944x+8840

and another

x^3+3.46x^2+7.392x+1.7056

and 5th order and so on. i don't need these solved i just need someone to tell me how to go about solving them. is there any easy way that will work on any degree or will i have to apply multiple methods to each of them depending on the order.
