Descartes’s Rule of Signs

Upper and Lower Bounds


Descartes s rule of signs

Descartes’s Rule of Signs

  • Let f(x) be a polynomial with real coefficients and ao≠ 0.

  • The number of positive real zeros of f is either equal to the number of variations in sign of f(x) or less than that number by an even integer.

  • The number of negative real zeros of f is either equal to the number of variations in the sign of f(-x) of less than that number by an even integer.


Apply descarte s rule of signs

Apply Descarte’s Rule of Signs

  • Consider f(x) = x2 + 8x + 15

  • Since there are no variations in sign of f(x) there are no positive roots.

  • Since f(-x) = (-x)2 + 8(-x) + 15

    = x2 – 8x + 15

    has two variations, f(x) may have two or zero negative roots.

    x = {-3. -5}


Variation in sign

Variation in Sign

  • A variation in sign means that when the polynomial is written in standard form that one term has a different sign than the next.

  • T(x) = x5 + 9x4 + 19x3 – 21x2 – 92x – 60

  • For Variations of T(x) just look at the signs

    T(x) has one variation in signs

  • For Variations of T(-x) you must change the sign of terms with odd numbered exponents

  • T(-x) = -x5 + 9x4 – 19x3 – 21x2 + 92x – 60

    T(-x) has four variation in signs


Find the zeros of t x

Find the Zeros of T(x)

  • T(x) = x5 + 9x4 + 19x3 – 21x2 – 92x – 60

  • 60  + 1, + 2 , + 3, + 4, + 5 , + 6 , + 10 , + 12 , + 15 , + 20, + 30, + 60

  • Since there is only one sign variation for T(x) there is at most, one positive root

  • SYN Program


Find the zeros of t x1

Find the Zeros of T(x)

T(x) = x5 + 9x4 + 19x3 – 21x2 – 92x – 60

T(x) = (x – 2)(x4 + 11x3 + 41x2 + 61x + 30)

Now that we have found the positive root we know that any other real roots must be negative.


Find the zeros of t x2

Find the Zeros of T(x)

T(x) = x5 + 9x4 + 19x3 – 21x2 – 92x – 60

T(x) = (x – 2)(x4 + 11x3 + 41x2 + 61x + 30)

  • 30  -1, -2 , -3, -4, -5 , -6 , -10 ,-15, - 30

    T(x) = (x – 2)(x + 1)(x3 + 10x2 + 31x + 30)

Find the zeros of t x3

Find the Zeros of T(x)

T(x) = x5 + 9x4 + 19x3 – 21x2 – 92x – 60

T(x) = (x – 2)(x4 + 11x3 + 41x2 + 61x + 30)

T(x) = (x – 2)(x + 1)(x3 + 10x2 + 31x + 30)

  • 30  -1, -2 , -3, -4, -5 , -6 , -10 ,-15, - 30

    T(x) = (x – 2)(x + 1)(x + 2)(x2 + 8x + 15)

Find the zeros of t x4

Find the Zeros of T(x)

T(x) = x5 + 9x4 + 19x3 – 21x2 – 92x – 60

T(x) = (x – 2)(x4 + 11x3 + 41x2 + 61x + 30)

T(x) = (x – 2)(x + 1)(x3 + 10x2 + 31x + 30)

T(x) = (x – 2)(x + 1)(x + 2)(x2 + 8x + 15)

T(x) = (x – 2)(x + 1)(x + 2)(x + 3)(x + 5)

x = {-5, -3, -2, -1, 2}

Homework 2.5

  • Zeros of Polynomial Functions

  • page 160

  • 1 - 31 odd,

  • 37 - 85 odd,

  • 91 - 94 all


5 find all of the zeros of the function

#5 Find all of the zeros of the function.

F(x) = (x + 6)(x + i)(x – i)

x = {-6, -i, i}


Section 2 5 part two

#10 Use the rational zero test to list all of the possible rational zeros of f. Verify that the zeros of f shown are contained in the list.

f(x) = 4x5 – 8x4 – 5x3 + 10x2 + x – 2


15 find all of the real zeros of the function

#15 Find all of the real zeros of the function.

h(t) = t3 + 12t2 + 21t + 10

Caution graph may be misleading.

With a cubic we expect another turn down to the left


25 f x x 3 x 2 4 x 4

#25 f(x) = x3 + x2 – 4x – 4

  • List the possible rational zeros of f,

  • sketch the graph of f so that some possibilities can be eliminated

  • determine all the real zeros

Graph eliminates -4, 1, 4

f(x) = x3 + x2 – 4x – 4

f(x) = x2 (x +1)– 4(x + 1)

f(x) = (x + 1)(x2– 4)

f(x) = (x + 1)(x +2)(x – 2)


42 find the polynomial function with integer coefficients that has the given zeros

Since imaginary solutions always appear in conjugate pairs we know to include
