can u please explain the question properly.................i will try to help you............
what is the meaning of factor in this sum.........


Acc. to the given Q.;
let x+1=0
therefore x=-1
since f(x)=2x∧4+9x∧3+2x∧2+10x+15
therefore f(-1)=2(-1)∧4+9(-1)∧3+2(-1)∧2+15=2-9+2+15=-7+2+15=17-7=10
hence x+1 is not a factor of f(x).
hope i helped u...:)
