Written Assignment 4

Answer all assigned exercises, and show all work. An asterisk indicates an exercise for which a

graph pool is provided in Module Details.

1. Given an equation and the graph of a quadratic function, do each of the following. (See

section 3.1, Examples 14.) [4 points]

a. Give the domain and range.

b. Give the coordinates of the vertex.

c. Give the equation of the axis.

d. Find the y-intercept.

e. Find the x-intercepts.

2. Graph each quadratic function. Give the (a) vertex, (b) axis, (c) domain, and (d) range.

Then determine (e) the interval of the domain for which the function is increasing and

(f) the interval for which the function is decreasing. (See section 3.1, Examples 14.) [8

approximated by the function

for 16 x 85. Find both the age at which the accident rate is a minimum and the

minimum rate. [4 points]

b.

f ( x) x 4 6 x3 9 x 2 3x 3; k 4

7. Use synthetic division to decide whether the given number k is a zero of the given

polynomial function. If not, give the value of f(k). (See section 3.2, Examples 2 and 3.) [4

points]

8. Use the factor theorem and synthetic division to decide whether the second polynomial

is a factor of the first. (See section 3.3, Example 1.) [4 points]

2 x 3 x 2; x 1

9. Factor f(x) into linear factors given that k is a zero of f(x). (See section 3.3, Example 2.)

[4 points]

conditions. (See section 3.3, Example 4.) [4 points]

Zeros of 2, 3 and 5; f (3) 6

13. Find a polynomial function f(x) of least degree having real coefficients with zeros as

given. (See section 3.3, Examples 46.) [4 points]

15. Graph the polynomial function.* Factor first if the expression is not in factored form.

(See section 3.4, Examples 3 and 4.) [4 points]

f ( x ) x( x 1)( x 1)

16. Use the intermediate value theorem for polynomials to show that the polynomial

function has a real zero between the numbers given. (See section 3.4, Example 5.) [4

points]

f ( x) 3 x 2 x 4; 1 and 2

17. Show that the real zeros of the polynomial function satisfy the given conditions. (See

section 3.4, Example 6.) [4 points]

f ( x) 2 x 5 x 4 2 x3 2 x 2 4 x 4; no real zero greater than 1

18. Solve the following variation problem. (See section 3.6, Examples 14.) [4 points]

If m varies jointly as z and p, and m = 10 when z = 2 and p = 7.5, find m when z = 6 and p =

9.

19. Current in a circuitThe current in a simple electrical circuit varies inversely as the

resistance. If the current is 50 amps when the resistance is 10 ohms, find the current if

the resistance is 5 ohms. (See section 3.6, Examples 14.) [4 points]

WA 4, p. 4

20. Long-distance phone callsThe number of long-distance phone calls between two cities

in a certain time period varies directly as the populations p1 and p2 of the cities and

inversely as the distance between them. If 10,000 calls are made between two cities 500

mi apart, having populations of 50,000 and 125,000, find the number of calls between

two cities 800 mi apart, having populations of 20,000 and 80,000. (See section 3.6,

Examples 14.) [4 points]
