Examples: a) is fourth degree polynomial with the leading coefficient -6. b) 3 is zero degree polynomial ( with the leading coefficient 3. c) is first degree polynomial ( with the leading coefficient 4. Example 2: Factor Example 3: Factor 04_Chapter 6 and Section 2.4 Page 1 of 18

2 Rational expressions (quotient of two polynomials): Example 4: Simplify a., b. Do problems in toolbox exercises. Section 6.1 Higher-Degree Polynomial Functions So far we used models represented by linear ( ) or quadratic ( ). They are first and second degree polynomial functions. Now we ll work with higher-degree polynomial functions. Some examples are: Cubic graph: Graph cubic Use the window: [-10, 10] by [-100, 100] Find the local maximum and local minimum if possible. What are the turning points? Quartic graph: Graph quartic Use the window: [-2, 2] by [-3, 3] Find the local maximum and local minimum if possible. What are the turning points? Minimums: [0.999, -1], Review the Table 6.3 on p. 434 The graph of polynomial functions has at most turning points and x-intercepts. The ends of polynomial graphs: - with odd degree are one end opening up and other end opening down. - with even degree are both ends opening up or both ends opening down 04_Chapter 6 and Section 2.4 Page 2 of 18

3 Section 6.2 Modeling with Cubic and Quartic Functions Example 4 The percent of US population that was foreign born. a. b. c. d. Create a scatter plot for the data using number of years after 1900 as the input Create a cubic function to model the data and graph the function on the same axes Find a quartic function to model the data and graph the function on the same axes Use the graphs from (b) and (c) to determine which function is the better fit year % Compute 1-st, 2-nd, 3-rd and 4-th differences for first 6 rows: 1-st nd rd 4-th Do 6.2:35 Section 6.3 Solution of Polynomial Equations Solving by Factoring Solve a. by factoring b. graphically by finding zeroes for: Note that zeroes of the function (x- intercepts) are solutions for the equation. The solution: a. The solution by factoring: (x-5)(x-2)=0 The solutions are x=5 or x=2 04_Chapter 6 and Section 2.4 Page 3 of 18

4 b. From the graph we can conclude that 5 and 2 are zeroes (x-intercepts) for y=x^2-3x Similar approach can be applied to higher-degree polynomials: If higher degree polynomials can be factored, each factor represents a solution for the corresponding equation. Example 3 For (photosynthesis example on p 461) a. What kind of graph do we expect according to the table on p. 434 b. Graph this function so that you can see two turning points. c. Use factoring to find x-intercepts of the graph. d. What nonnegative values of x will give positive y-values? e. Graph the function with the viewing window that shows only graph for x-values from d. The solution: a. Both ends of the graph should be falling. b. Use window [-10, 10] by [-1000, 1000] c. the solutions are x=0 or 6-x=0 (x-6) d. e. First find local maximum (4, 640) and then Use window [0, 6] by [0, 700] 04_Chapter 6 and Section 2.4 Page 4 of 18

5 Solving Using Factoring by Grouping When higher-degree polynomial has 4 terms it sometimes can be factored by grouping. Example 4. The total cost of producing a product is given by the function: thousand dollars where x is the number of hundreds of units produced. How many units must be produced to give a total cost of \$45,000? Algebraic solution: Factor a. is the only solution (12 hundreds of units) b. does not have a solution in real numbers Producing 1,200 units results in a total cost of \$45,000. ICE: 6.3:2 Solve The Root Method The root method is used when there is only one term with variable raised to the power. For the solutions in real numbers are: if 04_Chapter 6 and Section 2.4 is odd Page 5 of 18

6 if is even and (for even root is not defined in real numbers) Observe that for odd roots there is ONLY ONE solution while for even roots there are two. Steps to compute on the graphing calculator: 1. Enter 3*4 2. [MATH] and then select 5 ( ). That produces 3. Enter 16 (the display will look like: on the display ) 4. [ENTER] will produce the result (6) Example 5. a. b. c. ICE: 6.3:18 Solve Example 6 The future value of \$10,000 invested for 4 years at the rate r is given by the formula: Find rate r, as a percent, for which the future value is \$14,641. Estimating Solutions with Technology When higher-degree equations cannot be solved by factoring, graphical solution must be used. Example 7 The annual number of arrests for crime per 100,000 juveniles from 10 to 17 years of age can be modeled by the function: where x is the number of years after The number of arrests peaked in 1994 and the decreased. Use this model to estimate graphically the year after 1980 in which the number of arrests fell to 234 per 100,000 juveniles. 04_Chapter 6 and Section 2.4 Page 6 of 18

7 Section 6.5 Rational Functions and Rational Equations Graphs of Rational Functions and are polynomials. Rational function : is defined only for Example: Graph Observe that =1 and line y=0 is asymptote for and that y grows to as x approaches the 0. The. Asymptote of a function is a line such that the distance between the function and the line approaches zero as they tend to infinity. Note that although some functions may have asymptotes you will not always be asked to find or interpret them (read the questions carefully and answer only what you are asked about). For the rational function: Vertical asymptote occurs in x-values where where and Vertical asymptotes should not be visible on the graph. For some graphs, older calculators show vertical asymptotes as lines when [MODE] is set to Connected. 04_Chapter 6 and Section 2.4 Page 7 of 18

8 Vertical asymptote for is in x=0 Observe that Example 1 Find the vertical asymptote for Observe that Example 2. Function of the cost of removing of pollution is a. Graph the function on [-100, 200] by [-4000, 4000] b. Does this graph have a vertical asymptote on this window? Where? c. For what values of does this function serve as a model for the cost of removing particulate pollution? d. Use the information from (c) to graph the model on appropriate window e. What does the part of graph near the vertical asymptote tell us about the cost of removing particulate pollution? Some graphs have horizontal asymptotes (the graph appears horizontal one or both ends): and For the rational function: Horizontal asymptote: 1. If horizontal asymptote is 2. If horizontal asymptote is 3. If there is no horizontal asymptote Graph Observe that graph can cross horizontal asymptote. 04_Chapter 6 and Section 2.4 Page 8 of 18

9 Example 3. Daily average cost (in \$hundred) is represented by: is a number of produced units (golf carts) a. Graph the function in the windows [-20, 20] by [-30, 50] b. Does the graph in (a) have a horizontal asymptote? c. Graph the function on the window [0, 20] by [0,50] d. Does the graph using window in (a) or (c) better model the average cost function? Why? e. Find the minimum daily average cost and number of golf carts that gives the minimum daily average cost. Algebraic and Graphical Solution of Rational Equations Steps to solve a rational equation: 1. Multiply both sides with LCD (least common denominator) 2. Solve the resulting polynomial 3. Check the solution in the original equation Example 4 Solve Example 5 Monthly sales (in thousands of dollars) is represented by where are monthly advertising expenses (in thousands of dollars). Determine the amount of money that must be spent on advertising to generate \$100,000 in sales. a. Solve algebraically b. Solve graphically 04_Chapter 6 and Section 2.4 Page 9 of 18

10 Section 2.4 Solutions of Linear Inequalities (from the chapter 2) Algebraic Solution of Linear Inequalities When multiplying (dividing) inequality by a negative number, the direction of the inequality symbol must be reversed. For example : If inequality is multiplied by -1 : 3 > 2 (-1)*3 < (-1) *2 this is because -3 < -2 The solution of linear inequalities is typically an interval. Equality Inequality A problem (example 1) Multiply both sides by least common denominator Remove any parentheses Get variable on one side and all other items on another Divide both sides by the coefficient of the variable. If the coefficient is negative reverse the inequality symbol. Check the solution by substitution or with graphing utility. A problem (2.4:2) Multiply both sides by least 04_Chapter 6 and Section 2.4 or ( ) ( ) Equality Inequality Nothing to do Nothing to do Page 10 of 18

11 common denominator Remove any parentheses Nothing to do Nothing to do Get variable on one side and all other items on another Divide both sides by the coefficient of the variable. If the coefficient is negative reverse the inequality symbol. Check the solution by substitution or with graphing utility. or Graphical Solution of Linear Inequalities The steps are the same as when solving equations graphically only the solution in this case is an interval and we must be aware of the relationship between and a. Intersection method set left side of inequality as and right as - find the intersection b. x-intercept method move all terms to the left side leaving 0 on the right side - graph left side as and find the x-intercept Observe that x-intercept is actually the intersection of and =0 Example 4 Solve using the intersection of graphs method. 04_Chapter 6 and Section 2.4 Page 11 of 18

12 y₁ y₂ The intersection is (-2.55, -2.15). is greater than for or in interval notation [-2.55, ) Same problem can be solved using x-intercept method. 04_Chapter 6 and Section 2.4 Page 12 of 18

13 y₁ x-intercept is (-2.55, 0) The solution is or in interval notation [-2.55, ) 2.4:10 a. Solve algebraically and graphically. b. Draw a number line of the solution. a. LCD is 3*5=15 ( ) ( ) [80, ) algebraic solution Graphical solution: 04_Chapter 6 and Section 2.4 Page 13 of 18

14 Intersection method: y₁ y₂ Review 2.4:11 Double Inequalities Double inequalities are two inequalities connected by the word and or or. Example for and: and (shorthand for and) Example for or : or (no shorthand for or) Example 6 To receive B grade, the final test score, represented by x, must satisfy 2.4:23 Solve 2.4:26 Solve ICE: 2.4:24 Solve 04_Chapter 6 and Section 2.4 or or Page 14 of 18

15 Section 6.6 Polynomial and Rational Inequalities When solving algebraically, one side of inequality must be equal to 0 (this is the same as when solving equations earlier). Polynomial Inequalities 6.6:5 A sign diagram - The product + + X values from the intervals two intervals are and make inequality true so these Solve 800 Graphical solution: 600 x-intercepts are 0 and y for Interval notation: and and Algebraic solution by factoring: 1. Solve an equation to find zeroes 04_Chapter 6 and Section 2.4 Page 15 of 18

16 the solutions are: or ( ) 2. Zeroes divide number line into intervals: x <0 0 < x < 6 x > These intervals are checked against original inequality. Signs for each factor are entered into a table (table is called sign diagram) and product sign is evaluated. A sign diagram x < 0 0 < x < 6 x > 6 x The product Rational Inequalities Example 2 The average cost per set for the television sets is where x is the number of hundreds of units produced. Find the number of television sets that must be produced to keep average cost to at most \$590. Solve algebraically: 04_Chapter 6 and Section 2.4 Page 16 of 18

17 Zeroes are 10 and The intervals to consider are : Since negative values for x do not make sense for that reason first interval is instead of. Observe that the interval is NOT because rational expression is not defined so x=0 cannot be included in inequality solution. A sign diagram x (x-10) (x-500) The product The original inequality is so the product needs to be less than or equal to 0 and that happens only for the interval Solve graphically: 04_Chapter 6 and Section 2.4 Page 17 of 18

18 Intersection method: y₁ y₂ Intersections are (10, 590) and (500, 590) is below or equal 590 for x values in [10, 500] or ICE: 6.6:9 Solve both graphically and algebraically. 04_Chapter 6 and Section 2.4 Page 18 of 18
