"depressed
2m2 ­ 6m ­10 = 0
equation"
Factor, complete the square,
use quadratic formula to solve.
2(m2 ­ 3m ­5) = 0

m = 3 ± √(-3)2 - 4(1)(-5)
2(1)

m = 3 ± √9 + 20 m = 3 ± √29
2 2

Find a polynomial equation with integral
coefficients that has the given numbers
as roots. 0 and -1 (d.r.)

x = 0 x = -1 x = -1

x + 1 = 0 x + 1 = 0

x (x+1) (x+1) = 0
Distribute/FOIL
x (x2 + 2x + 1) = 0

x3 + 2x2 + 1x = 0
