1. f(x)=-7x^9+x^5-x^2+6

This is what I did:

There are 2 sign changes

f(-x)=-7(-x)^9+(-x)^5-(-x)^2+6

There are 2 sign changes

So, are there 2 or 0 positive zeros, 2 or 0 negative zeros?

2. f(x)10x^3-8x^2+x+5

There are 2 sign changes

f(-x)=10(-x)^3-8(-x)^2+(-x)+5

There are 2 sign changes

So, are there 2 or 0 positive zeros, no neggative zeros?
