EXAMPLE 1 Find the number of solutions or zeros a. How many solutions does the equation x3 + 5x2 + 4x + 20 = 0 have? SOLUTION Because x3 + 5x2 + 4x + 20 = 0 is a polynomial equation of degree 3,it has three solutions. (The solutions are – 5, – 2i, and 2i.)

2
EXAMPLE 1 Find the number of solutions or zeros b. How many zeros does the function f (x) = x4 – 8x3 + 18x2 – 27 have? SOLUTION Because f (x) = x4 – 8x3 + 18x2 – 27 is a polynomial function of degree 4, it has four zeros. (The zeros are – 1, 3, 3, and 3.)
