    You have made a mistake. But even from there you should still be able to solve it (complete the square, quadratic formula to find 'critical values') as of course not all quadratics can be factorised nicely (normal A level factorising at least).

    What is the ^2? Because x+11 you turned the "quadratic equation" into ^2. Maybe you meant to leave that as ^11 and x as -3?

    -2x^4x^2(1-x^2) so -2x will remain the same -2x^3(1x^)
