How do I find all the real zeros of the polynomial function of these 3 ? ):
1) g(t) = 1/2t^41/2
2) g(t) = t^56t^3+9t
3) f(x) = 5x^4+15x^2+10

1. take out a common factor of 1/2, then factor as a difference of squares
(1/2)(t^2 + 1)(t1)(t+1)
etc
2.
t(t^4  6t^2 + 9)
= t(t^2  3)(t^2 3)
etc
3. 5(x^4 + 3x^2 + 2)
= 5(x^2 + 1)(x^2 + 2)
etc
