I think there are a couple of ways to factor this but you have to start somewhere. I always look at x = +1 or -1 to start out. It turns out that x = -1 is a factor. Then, you can use synthetic division to determine subsequent factors but remember there can only be a maximum of 6 factors for this 6th degree polynomial. If you have a graphing calculator just plug this equation in to find the zeroes. x = -2 is another real factor, the rest is up to you.
