Ex. 2 Solve each equation and compare it to the corresponding function. 4.1 Solving Polynomial Equations b) x2 6x + 9 = 0 a) 2x 3 = 0 c) 2x2 5x + 1 = 0 Recall: Polynomial Fns: y = anxn + an1xn1 + ... + a1x + a0, a∈R,
Corresponding Eq'n: 0 = anxn + an1xn1 + ... + a1x + a0, which has at most 'n' real roots (zeros, or solutions)
d) x3 5x2 = 22x + 16 Ex.1
From the graphs shown, state the nature of the roots of the corresponding equation. e) x3 2x2 9x + 18 = 0 Oct 77:45 PM Oct 78:12 PM f) x3 + x2 + x 3 = 0 Note: A polynomial function of degree 'n' has n roots which may be of the form of: real roots (not all are distinct, or different)
complex roots (which occur in pairs complex conjugates)
a combination of the above. hwk pg 204 #1 pair share, #2,5, 6bce, 7cd Oct 78:17 PM 1 ...
