Unformatted text preview: ld tell you which is which.) We see the graph of f is below the graph 1 of g on −∞, − 2 . However, it is difficult to see what is happening near x = 1. Zooming in (and making the graph of g thicker), we see that the graphs of f and g do intersect at x = 1, but the graph of g remains below the graph of f on either side of x = 1. 3.3 Real Zeros of Polynomials 3.3.3 217 Exercises 1. Find the real zeros of the polynomial using the techniques specified by your instructor. State the multiplicity of each real zero.
