10. This problem can be solved graphically by using NDER to obtain the graphs shown below. y y 9 y 0 [ 2 4, 4] by [ 2 1, 0.3] [ 2 4, 4] by [ 2 0.4, 0.6] [ 2 4, 4] by [ 2 0.7, 0.8] An alternative approach using a combination of algebraic and graphical techniques follows. Note that the denominator of y is always positive because it is equivalent to ( x 1 1) 2 1 2. y 95 5 y 05 5 5 } 2 ( x x 3 2 2 1 1 2 8 x x 1 2 3 1 ) 3 2 } Using graphing techniques, the zeros of 2 x 3 2 18 x 2 12 (and hence of y 0 ) are at x < 2 2.584, x < 2 0.706, and x < 3.290.
