STEP 4: Write which of the roots have even and odd multiplicity

Since the exponent of the term (x-1) is 4. The root x = 1 has an even multiplicity

Since the exponent of the term (x+5) is 1, the root x = -5 has an odd multiplicity

Since the exponent of the term (x-2) is 3, the root x = 2 has an odd multiplicity
