Math 1540 Test 1 3-points each Name: 1.) Use the given polynomial to answer the following questions. 7 6 5 4 3 2 ( ) 3 6 14 3 33 72 108 window: [-5, 5, 1] and [-150, 150,30] P x x x x x x x x = + - - - - + + (a) Find all local and absolute extreme points and label each point. Round your answers to the nearest hundredth. Local minima: (-2.02, -112.09), (2, 0) Local maxima: (-3, 0), (0.69, 137.27) (b) Find the rational zero(s). Hint: all the factors of 108 are between 1-10. List all the integers p that are factors of the constant term, 108 p: ± 1, ± 2, ± 3, ± 4, ± 6, ± 9, ± 12, ± 18, ± 27, ± 54, ± 108 List all the integers q that are factors of the leading coefficient, 1 q: ± 1 Form all possible ratios p q . p q : ± 1, ± 2, ± 3, ± 4, ± 6, ± 9, ± 12, ± 18, ± 27, ± 54, ± 108 Check 2: 1 3 6 14 3 33 72 108 2 2 10 8 12 30 126 108 1 5 4 6 15 63 54 0 - - - - - - - - - - - - Since P(2) = 0 then x – 2 is a factor. Then 6 5 4 3 2 ( ) ( 2)( 5 4 6 15 63 54) P x x x x x x x x = - + + - - - -
