Solving Polynomial Inequalities Basic Principle: When will the product “ab” be positive? Answer: When a and b are both positive OR when a and b are both negative! Basic Principle: When will the product “abcde” be negative? Answer: When an odd number of the factors are negative!

2
Solving Polynomial Inequalities 1.Set equal to zero (Move everything to one side.) 2.Factor 3.The solution from each factor becomes a CRITICAL NUMBER 4.Plot critical numbers on a number line 5.Test any one number in each interval noting each factor as positive or negative. Find the signs that make the desired inequality true. * This is called a SIGN GRAPH

3
Example with Two Factors Set inequal to zero in general form x 2 – x > 6 x 2 – x – 6 > 0

4
Example with Two Factors Factor and solve. Each response is a CRITICAL NUMBER x 2 – x – 6 > 0 (x – 3)(x + 2) > 0 Critical #s: -2, 3 -23 Next, set up intervals on a SIGN GRAPH (Critical #s are where the product would be exactly equal to zero!)

5
Example with Two Factors The critical numbers make this expression exactly equal to zero so they are not included as part of the solution to a strict inequality. x 2 – x – 6 > 0 (x – 3)(x + 2) > 0 Critical #s: -2, 3 -2 3

6
Example with Two Factors In order to get ab > 0, wouldn’t both factors have to be positive or both negative? x 2 – x – 6 > 0 (x – 3)(x + 2) > 0 Critical #s: -2, 3 Test each region of the graph: Where will both factors be negative? Where will both factors be positive? -2 3

7
x 2 – x – 6 > 0 (x – 3)(x + 2) > 0 Critical #s: -2, 3 (-)(-) (-)(+) (+)(+) Pick any # in the interval and plug it into x. For example, test x = -10, x=0 and x=10 Example with Two Factors -2 3 Test: x = -10 x= 0 x=10

8
Example with Two Factors x 2 – x – 6 > 0 (x – 3)(x + 2) > 0 Critical #s: -2, 3 (-)(-) (-)(+) (+)(+) Solution Set: {x: x 3} -2 3

9
Take Special Note: 1.Whether endpoints are included or open. > OR < open ≤ OR closed circle 2.The number of regions to test is one more than the number of critical numbers. 3.With single power factors, intervals will generally alternate. 4.When you cross a double root, two factors change sign at the same time so the intervals will not alternate there.

10
Example with Three Factors You must test a number in each region to determine the sign. Make a “sign graph” x 3 – x 2 – 6x > 0 x(x – 3)(x + 2) > 0 Critical #s: -2, 0, 3 (-)(-)(-) (-)(-)(+) (+)(-)(+) (+)(+)(+) Signs by region: -2 3 0

Example with Three Factors You must test a number in each region to determine the sign. Called a “sign graph” x 3 – x 2 – 6x > 0 x(x – 3)(x + 2) > 0 Critical #s: -2, 0, 3 (-)(-)(-) (-)(-)(+) (+)(-)(+) (+)(+)(+) Signs by region: -2 3 0

13
Example with Four Factors Watch two signs change together when a factor appears twice. x 4 – x 3 – 6x 2 > 0 (x)(x)(x – 3)(x + 2) > 0 Critical #s: -2, 0 d.r., 3 (-)(-)(-)(-) (-)(-)(-)(+) (+)(+)(-)(+) (+)(+)(+)(+) Signs by region -2 3 0
