Section 1.9a Polynomial Inequalities Objective 1: Solving Polynomial Inequalities Steps for Solving Polynomial Inequalities Step 1: Move all terms to one side of the inequality leaving 0 on the other side. Step 2: Factor the nonzero side of the inequality. Step 3: Find all boundary points by setting the factored polynomial equal to zero. Step 4: Plot the boundary points on a number line. If the inequality is or , use a solid circle . If the inequality is < or >, use an open circle . Step 5: Now that the number line is divided into intervals, pick a test value from each
