### Chapter 2 Review

Polynomial Functions

L2.1 – 2.2 Evaluating Polynomials
• P(x) = anxn + an-1xn-1 + … + a2x2 + a1x + a0
• Evaluate by
• Direct substitution or
• Remainder Theorem: When P(x) is divided by (x – a), the remainder is P(a). a.k.a Synthetic Substitution
• Zeros and Factors
• a is a zero of P(x), if P(a) = 0 [A root refers to the soln to an eqn]
• (x – a) is a factor of P(x), if P(x) divided by (x – a) leaves a zero remainder. [Factor Theorem, (x – a) is factor of P(x),iffP(a) = 0]

EXERCISES: Give real zeros of each function.

• P(x) = (x – 7)2(2x + 1)
• f(x) = x3 + 2x2 + x, Also evaluate f(-2) by direct & synthetic substitution
• g(x) = 6x2 – 7x – 20
• h(x) = x3 – 5x2 + x – 5
• k(x) = 4x4 – 17x2 + 18
L2.3 Graphing Polynomial Functions
• Leading coefficient test: if an > 0 RHS , if an < 0 RHS
• If degree of P(x) is even, both ends go in the same direction

odd, the ends go in opposite directions

• Multiplicity of zeros: (x – a)n is a factor of P(x)
• If n is even, graph is tangent to x-axis at a (touches but doesn’t cross)
• If n is odd, graph [flattens and ]crosses the x-axis at a.
• To graph: identify zeros and create a sign graph to determine intervals where graph is above and below the x-axis. Verify by examining degree and sign of an.

EXERCISES:

• Sketch graphs.
• y = –x2(x + 4)(x – 4)
• y = x(x + 3)2
• y = x3(2 – x)

L2.3 More Exercises
• Write an equation for each graph

L2.4 Max’s & Min’s of Quadratic & Cubic Functions
• Quadratic Functions – max or min occurs at vertex

Value is

• Cubic Functions – have “local” max’s and min’s.

Odd degree functions are unbounded, so have min or max points only within an interval. Use a graphing calculator to approximate max’s or min’s.

• EXERCISES:
• Two numbers have a difference of 6. Find their minimum possible product.
• An open box is to be formed by cutting squares from a 10cm square sheet of metal and then folding up the sides as shown.
• Write a function, V(x), to describe the volume of
• the resulting box.
• Find the domain of V(x).

L2.6 Solving Polynomial Equations (finding roots)
• Recast higher degree polynomials to Quadratic Form
• Rational Root Theorem – potential rational roots are of the form , where p = factors of a0 and q = factors of an.

Test roots using synthetic division and find subsequent roots using depressed polynomial.

EXERCISES: Solve.

• x3 + 5x2 – 4x – 20 = 0
• 2x4 – x2 – 3 = 0
• 3x4 + 13x3 + 15x2 – 4 = 0
L2.7 General Results for Polynomial Functions
• Fundamental Theorem of Algebra: a polynomial of degree n has exactly n roots in the complex number system.
• Complex and irrational roots occur in conjugate pairs.
• Odd degree polynomials have at least one real root and their graphs are unbounded.
• Sum and Product of Roots:
• General Polynomial: anxn + an-1xn-1 + … + a2x2 + a1x + a0 = 0

Sum of Roots: Product of Roots:

• Quadratics: ax2 + bx + c = 0: Sum = –b/a, Product = c/a

EXERCISES:

• Find a cubic equation with integral coefficients that has 2 and 4 + i as roots.
• A cubic equation has no quadratic term. What are its roots if one of them is .
• A quartic (4th degree) equation has no cubic term and no constant term. What are its roots if one of them is .

L2.4: 1. The minimum product is –9 and the numbers are –3 and 3.

2. a) The base of the box is a square with length = width = 10 – 2x.

The height is x. Volume, V(x) = x(10 – 2x)2

b) x(10 – 2x)2 > 0 so 0 < x < 5
