Section 6-2: Polynomials and Linear Factors
Goal 1.03: Operate with algebraic expressions (polynomial, rational, complex fractions) to solve problems.

Standard Form vs Factored Form
f(x) = x3 – 2x2 – 8x f(x) = x(x – 4)(x + 2) In factored form you can easily determine the zeros of the function (zeros = x-intercepts)

Finding zeros and multiplicity of functions in factored form:
1. y= x(x + 8)(x – 2) x= 0, x= -8, x= 2 all multiplicity of 1 2. y= x(x – 8)2 x= 0, x= 8 with a multiplicity of 2 3. y= x2(x + 4)(x – 3) x= 0 with multiplicity of 2, x= -4, x= 3 4. y= (x2 – 4 )(x2 – 9) x= -2, x= 2, x= -3, x= 3 5. y= (x – 2)(x + 7)3 x= -7 with a multiplicity of 3, x = 2

Write a Polynomial Function in Standard Form with the given zeros:
1. –1, 0, 2 x(x + 1)(x – 2) (x2 + x)(x – 2) x3 – 2x2 + x2 – 2x x3 – x2 – 2x 2. –1, 3, 4 (x + 1)(x – 3)(x – 4) (x + 1)(x2 – 4x – 3x + 12) (x + 1)(x2 – 7x + 12) x3– 7x2 + 12x + x2 – 7x + 12 x3 – 6x2 + 5x + 12

3. –2 with a multiplicity of 3 (x + 2)3 (x + 2)(x + 2)(x + 2)

Write each Polynomial in factored form
1. x3 – 7x2 + 10x x(x2 – 7x + 10) x(x – 5)(x – 2) 2. x3 – 6x2 – 16x

3. x3 + 7x2 + 12x 4. x3 – 8x2 + 15x

Finding the relative extrema and zeros of the function by graphing:
f(x) = x3 – x2 – 9x + 9
