Homework Help: Pre-Calc

Posted by Jaclyn on Monday, September 12, 2011 at 5:27pm.

I know about Descartes Rule but I don't really get how to figure this out-Please check my answers-

I don't get this one find number of possible positive and negative real roots of f(x) = x^4-x^3+2x^2 + x-5
I think there are 3 sign changes so there are 3 positive but I get really confused on doing the negative real zeros would I rewrite for negative f(x) = -x^4 -(-x^3) -2x^2 -(x-5) so there would be 2negative real zeros
