Unformatted text preview: MAC1105 Names:___________________________ Group work 5 October 6, 2011 ____________________________________________________________________________________________ Graphs of Polynomials The exponent of a factor is called the multiplicity of that factor. In each of the given formulas the multiplicity of the factor (x 4) + is 1, while the multiplicity of the factor (x 2)- starts at 1 and increases to 4. 1. Draw the following graphs. Use [ 5,5]- for min max [x ,x ] and an appropriate scale of your own choosing for the y axis so all the extremes are clearly shown. Put the values you use for min y and max y at the ends of each vertical axis. Locate and label all x- and y-intercepts. State the degree of each polynomial and multiplicity of the factor (x 2)- . Use your calculator’s max/min feature to label the local extremes with coordinates (x, y) , using one-decimal-place accuracy as necessary....
