3 2 polynomial inequalities 3 2 polynomial inequalities Presentation Transcript

  • 3-2 Polynomial Inequalities in One Variable Objective: Solve polynomial inequalities in one variable by: 1. Using a sign graph 2. Analyzing a graph of P(x)
  • Polynomial Inequalites • If P(x) is a polynomial, then P(x) > 0 and P(x) < 0 are polynomial inequalities. • We will learn two methods to solve: 1. Using a sign graph 2. Analyzing a graph of P(x)
  • Method 1 – Using a Sign Graph • Use if the polynomial is factorable. • Factor to find zeros • Plot on a number line • Test values from each interval to determine the sign of P(x) • Hint: • P(x) < 0 means find negative intervals • P(x) > 0 means find positive intervals
  • Example 1 • Solve x3 – 2x2 – 3x < 0 using a sign graph.
  • You Try! • Solve: 2x2 + 3x – 5 < 0
  • Example 2 • Solve (x2 – 1)(x – 4)2  0
  • You Try! • Solve: x4 – 4x2  0
  • Rational Inequalities • The same method can be used for inequalities of the form where P(x) and Q(x) are polynomials. To solve: • Plot all zeros of the numerator and denominator • Use an open dot for zeros of the denominator (these make the function undefined and are not included in the solution)
  • Example 3 • Solve
  • You Try! • Solve
  • Method 2 – Analyze the Graph • Useful for functions that are not factorable. • Graph the function on the calculator. • Find zeros using trace • P(x) > 0 where graph is above x-axis • P(x) < 0 where graph is below x-axis
  • Example 4 • Solve 2x3 + x2 – 8x + 3 > 0 using a graphing calculator.
  • You Try! • Solve 4x3 – 3x2 – 9x – 2  0
