Linear function A polnomial function with degree 1. That is, f() = m + b, m 0. Quadratic function Let a, b, and c be real numbers with a 0. The function f() = a + b + c is called a quadratic function. Ais of smmetr A line about which a parabola is smmetric. Also called simpl the ais of the parabola. Verte The point where the ais intersects the parabola. I. The Graph of a Quadratic Function (Pages 9 94) Let n be a nonnegative integer and let a n, a n 1,..., a, a 1, a 0 be real numbers with a n 0. A polnomial function of with degree n is... the function f() = a n n + a n 1 n a + a 1 + a 0. How to analze graphs of quadratic functions A quadratic function is a polnomial function of second degree. The graph of a quadratic function is a special U -shaped curve called a(n) parabola. If the leading coefficient of a quadratic function is positive, the graph of the function opens upward and the verte of the parabola is the minimum point on the graph. If the leading coefficient of a quadratic function is negative, the graph of the function opens downward and the verte of the parabola is the maimum point on the graph.

Etrema The minimums and maimums of a function. Relative minimum The least value of a function on an interval. Relative maimum The greatest value of a function on an interval. Repeated zero If ( a) k, k > 1, is a factor of a polnomial, then = a is a repeated zero. Multiplicit The number of times a zero is repeated. Intermediate Value Theorem Let a and b be real numbers such that a < b. If f is a polnomial function such that f(a) f(b), then, in the interval [a, b], f takes on ever value between f(a) and f(b). I.

5 Section.3 Real Zeros of Polnomial Functions 7 Section.3 Real Zeros of Polnomial Functions Objective: In this lesson ou learned how to use long division and snthetic division to divide polnomials b other polnomials and how to find the rational and real zeros of polnomial functions. Course Number Instructor Date Important Vocabular Define each term or concept. Long division of polnomials A procedure for dividing two polnomials, which is similar to long division in arithmetic. Division Algorithm If f() and d() are polnomials such that d() 0, and the degree of d() is less than or equal to the degree of f(), there eist unique polnomials q() and r() such that f() = d()q() + r() where r() = 0 or the degree of r() is less than the degree of d(). Snthetic division A shortcut for long division of polnomials when dividing b divisors of the form k. Remainder Theorem If a polnomial f() is divided b k, then the remainder is r = f(k). Factor Theorem A polnomial f() has a factor ( k) if and onl if f(k) = 0. Upper bound A real number b is an upper bound for the real zeros of f if no real zeros of f are greater than b. Lower bound A real number b is a lower bound for the real zeros of f if no real zeros of f are less than b. I.

That is, r = f(k). ) If r = 0, ( k) is a factor of f(). 3) If r = 0, (k, 0) is an -intercept of the graph of f. IV. The Rational Zero Test (Pages 1 14) Describe the purpose of the Rational Zero Test. The Rational Zero Test relates the possible rational zeros of a polnomial with integer coefficients to the leading coefficient and to the constant term of the polnomial. How to use the Rational Zero Test to determine possible rational zeros of polnomial functions State the Rational Zero Test. If the polnomial f() = a n n + a n 1 n a + a 1 + a 0 has integer coefficients, ever rational zero of f has the form: rational zero = p/q, where p and q have no common factors other than 1, p is a factor of the constant term a 0, and q is a factor of the leading coefficient a n. To use the Rational Zero Test,... first list all rational numbers whose numerators are factors of the constant term and whose denominators are factors of the leading coefficient. Then use trial and error to determine which of these possible rational zeros, if an, are actual zeros of the polnomial. Eample 4: List the possible rational zeros of the polnomial 5 function f ( ) = ± 1, ± 5, ± 1/3, ± 5/3 Some strategies that can be used to shorten the search for actual zeros among a list of possible rational zeros include... using a programmable calculator to speed up the calculations, using a graphing utilit to estimate the locations of zeros, using the Intermediate Value Theorem (along with a table generated b a graphing utilit) to give approimations of zeros, or using the Factor Theorem and snthetic division to test possible rational zeros, etc. 4 3 Copright Houghton Mifflin Compan.

Let f() be a polnomial with real coefficients and a positive leading coefficient. Suppose f() is divided b c, using snthetic division. 1. If c > 0 and each number in the last row is either positive or zero, c is an upper bound for the real zeros of f.. If c < 0 and the numbers in the last row are alternatel positive and negative (zero entries count as positive or negative), c is a lower bound for the real zeros of f. How to use Descartes s Rule of Signs and the Upper and Lower Bound Rules to find zeros of polnomials Eplain how the Upper and Lower Bound Rules can be useful in the search for the real zeros of a polnomial function. Eplanations will var. For instance, suppose ou are checking a list of possible rational zeros. When checking the possible rational zero with snthetic division, each number in the last row is positive or zero. Then ou need not check an of the other possible rational zeros that are greater than and can concentrate on checking onl values less than.
