1)A.f(x)= x^2+4
B.f(x)= x^24x^2+4x16
C.f(x)= x^2+4x^2+4x+16
D.f(x)= x^24x^24x+16
2)A.+1,+2,+3,+6
B.0,+1,+2,+3,+6,+1/3,+2/3
C.+1,+2,+3,+6,+1/3,+2/3
D.+1,+3,+1/6,+1/3,+1/2,+3/2
4)I don't know what they mean either but this is all it says.
A.3x^2x+5
B.7530x+3x^2
C.3x^215x^2
D.15x^23x^3
what do they mean when they say like 2i,what is that?
1)Write a polynomial function of least degree with integral coefficients whose zeros include 4 and 2i.
answer= f(x)= x^24x^2+4x16
2)List all of the possible rational zeros of f(x)= 3x^32x^2+7x+6
dont know
3)Find all of the rational zeros of f(x)= 4x^33x^222x15
dont know
4)Find (f.g)(x) for f(x)= 3x^2 and g(x)= 5x
answer= 3x^215x^2
1. imaginary roots always come in pairs, like in ±2i
so the factors would be (x+2i)(x2i)(x4)
expand it and you will have your answer.
2. I tried the factor theorem hoping for some f(a)=0 where a=±1,±2,±3
None worked so I don't know how you are expected to do that one.
You could try ±1/3,±2/3 but that seems a bit too farfetched from the type of questions you seem to have
3. try f(1) it will be a zero
so x+1 is a factor. Do synthetic division or long division, you should get an answer of 4x^2  7x  15 which factors again.
(see if you can get zeros at x=1,3,5/4
4. I don't know if your textbook defines
(f∙g) as f(g(x)) or g(f(x)).
f(g(x)) = f(5x) = 3(5x)^2
= 75  30x + 3x^2
g(f(x)) = g(3x^2) = 5  3x^2
i is the symbol for √(1), which is the imaginary unit number.
so 2i is really 2√(1)
in other words i^2 = 1
eg. solve x^2 + 9=0
x^2 = 9
x = ±(√9)(√(1))
x = ±3√(1)
x = ±3i
1. After I expanded my answer to #1 above I got x^3  4x^2 + 4x  16 which is the same as B if your first term is x^3, as it should be for all of those answers.
2. for this questions according to the answers I can see that they simply wanted those values that your would try in your f(x) function. As I noted in my first answer, the correct answer would appear to be C
4. So it is B
Look at my first solution how I got that.

Andrew factored the expression 54x^330x^2+15x as 5x(9x^26x+3) but when Melissa applied the distributive law and multiplied out 5x(9x^26x+3). she got 45x^330x^2+15x. thus andrew's solution does not appear to check. why is this?
