    -k^3 + k^2 + 2*k + 4

    = -k(k^2 -k - 2) + 4

    = -k(k^2 -2k + k -2) + 4

    = -k[k(k-2) + 1(k-2)] + 4

    = -k(k+1)(k-2) + 4

    How do you want us to calculate? What is the expression equal to???

    It's not an equation to solve for k.

    ===========================

    AFTER THE EDIT:

    -k(k+1)(k-2) + 4 = 0

    -k(k+1)(k-2) = -4

    k(k+1)(k-2)= 4

    k = 4/(k+1)(k-2)
