Find the real zeros of f (x) = x3 − 12 x2 − 72 x + 72 by first finding a polynomial q (x) with integer coefficients such that q (x) = N · f (x) for some integer N . (Recall that the Rational Zeros Theorem required the polynomial in question to have integer coefficients.) Show that f and q have the same real zeros. 3. Solve the polynomial inequality and give your answer in interval form.

Let f (x) = 5x7 − 33x6 + 3x5 − 71x4 − 597x3 + 2097x2 − 1971x + 567. With the help of your classmates, find the x- and y - intercepts of the graph of f . Find the intervals on which the function is increasing, the intervals on which it is decreasing and the local extrema. Sketch the graph of f , using more than one picture if necessary to show all of the important features of the graph....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
