LESSON 7.2 Name Finding Complex Solutions of Polynomial Equations Class 7.2 Finding Complex Solutions of Polynomial Equations Essential Question: What do the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra and its corollary tell you about the roots of the polynomial equation p(x) = 0 where p(x) has degree n? Common Core Math Standards A-APR.2 You have used various algebraic and graphical methods to find the roots of a polynomial equation p(x) = 0 or the zeros of a polynomial function p(x). Because a polynomial can have a factor that repeats, a zero or a root can occur multiple times. Know and apply the Remainder Theorem: For a polynomial p(x) and a number a, the remainder on division by x – a is p(a), so p(a) = 0 if and only if (x – a) is a factor of p(x). Also N-CN.9(+), A-REI.11, A-APR.3, F-IF.7c The polynomial p(x) = x 3 + 8x 2 + 21x + 18 = (x + 2)(x + 3) has -2 as a zero once and -3 as a zero twice, or with multiplicity 2. The multiplicity of a zero of p(x) or a root of p(x) = 0 is the number of times that the related factor occurs in the factorization. 2 Mathematical Practices In this Explore, you will use algebraic methods to investigate the relationship between the degree of a polynomial function and the number of zeros that it has.

For each function, count the number of unique zeros, both real and non-real. How does the number of unique zeros compare with the degree? The number of unique zeros is less than or equal to the degree. 2. Examine the table again. This time, count the total number of zeros for each function, where a zero of multiplicity m is counted as m zeros. How does the total number of zeros compare with the degree? The total number of zeros is the same as the degree of the function. 3. Discussion Describe the apparent relationship between the degree of a polynomial function and the number of zeros it has.

Explain 1 Applying the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra to Solving Polynomial Equations Algebra and its corollary by applying them to solutions of linear equations and easily factorable quadratic equations, with which students are familiar. Include examples of quadratic equations that have roots with multiplicity of 2. The Fundamental Theorem of Algebra and its corollary summarize what you have observed earlier while finding rational zeros of polynomial functions and in completing the Explore. The Fundamental Theorem of Algebra Every polynomial function of degree n ≥ 1 has at least one zero, where a zero may be a complex number. Corollary: Every polynomial function of degree n ≥ 1 has exactly n zeros, including multiplicities. Because the zeros of a polynomial function p(x) give the roots of the equation p(x) = 0, the theorem and its corollary also extend to finding all roots of a polynomial equation. Example 1 © Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company Solve the polynomial equation by finding all roots. 2x 3 - 12x 2 - 34x + 204 = 0 The polynomial has degree 3, so the equation has exactly 3 roots. 2x 3 - 12x 2 - 34x + 204 = 0 x 3 - 6x 2 - 17x + 102 = 0 Divide both sides by 2. (x 3 - 6x 2) - (17x - 102) = 0 Group terms. Factor out common monomials. x 2(x - 6) - 17(x - 6) = 0 (x 2 - 17)(x - 6) = 0 Factor out the common binomial. _ One root is x = 6. Solving x 2 - 17 = 0 gives x 2 = 17, or x = ±√17 . _ _ The roots are -√17 , √17 , and 6. Module 7 356 Lesson 2 DIFFERENTIATE INSTRUCTION A2_MNLESE385894_U3M07L2.indd 356 3/19/14 3:23 PM Communicating Math Understanding the concept of the degree of a polynomial is important in applying the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra and its corollary. Students (especially English language learners) may benefit from a rigorous review of finding degrees of polynomials written in standard form, factored form, and with terms in varying orders of degree. Focus on polynomials that contain only single-variable monomials. Check that students can explain how to find the degree of the polynomial for each of the different forms. Finding Complex Solutions of Polynomial Equations 356 B QUESTIONING STRATEGIES x 4 - 6x 2 - 27 = 0 The polynomial has degree 4 , so the equation has exactly 4 roots. If, after using synthetic substitution to test all possible rational roots of a cubic equation, you find only one root of the equation, can you conclude that the remaining roots are imaginary? Explain. No. The remaining roots may be imaginary or they may be irrational. Notice that x 4 - 6x 2 - 27 has the form u 2 - 6u - 27, where u = x 2. So, you can factor it like a quadratic trinomial. x 4 - 6x 2 - 27 = 0 (x - 9 )(x + 3 ) = 0 2 Factor the trinomial. (x + 3 )(x - 3 )(x + 3) = 0 2 Factor the difference of squares.

These pairs reflect the “±” in the quadratic formula. For example, for any of the following number pairs, you will never have a polynomial equation for which only one number in the pair is a root. _ √5 ― ― ― ― Writing a Polynomial Function From its Zeros _ 1 i √3 and _ 1 i √3 11 + _ 11 - _ and -√ 5 ; 1 + √7 and 1 - √7 ; i and -i; 2 + 14i and 2 - 14i; _ 6 6 6 6 ― ― The irrational root pairs a + b √c and a - b √c are called irrational conjugates. The complex root pairs a + bi and a - bi are called complex conjugates. Irrational Root Theorem QUESTIONING STRATEGIES ― If a polynomial p(x) has rational coefficients and a + b √c is a root of the equation p(x) = 0, where a and b are rational and √c is irrational, then a - b √c is also a root of p(x) = 0. ― ― If one zero of a fourth degree polynomial function is rational, what must be true about the other three zeros? One of the three must also be rational. The other two could be either irrational conjugates or imaginary conjugates. Complex Conjugate Root Theorem If a + bi is an imaginary root of a polynomial equation with real-number coefficients, then a - bi is also a root. Is it possible for a fifth degree polynomial equation to have no real zeros? Explain. No. Since imaginary zeros occur in conjugate pairs, there could be at most 4 imaginary zeros. Therefore, at least one zero must be real. Because the roots of the equation p(x) = 0 give the zeros of a polynomial function, corresponding theorems apply to the zeros of a polynomial function. You can use this fact to write a polynomial function from its zeros. Because irrational and complex conjugate pairs are a sum and difference of terms, the product of irrational conjugates is always a rational number and the product of complex conjugates is always a real number. _ _ _ (2 - √10 )(2 + √10 ) = 22 - (√10 )2 = 4 - 10 = -6 _ _ _ (1 - i√2 )(1 + i√2 ) = 12 - (i√2 )2 = 1 - (-1)(2) = 3 Example 2 Write the polynomial function with least degree and a leading coefficient of 1 that has the given zeros.

Students may make errors when multiplying factors of the form (x - a), where a is an irrational number such as 3 + √2 or an imaginary number such as 1 - 4i. Encourage them to multiply each of these types of factors with the factor that contains the conjugate of the irrational or imaginary number first, and show them how to use grouping to make the multiplication easier. _ Because irrational zeros come in conjugate pairs, 3 - 2√7 must also be a zero of the function. Use the 3 zeros to write a function in factored form, then multiply to write it in standard form. The polynomial function is p(x) = x 3 - 11x 2 + 11x + 95.

Explain 3 Solving a Real-World Problem by Graphing Polynomial Functions You can use graphing to help you locate or approximate any real zeros of a polynomial function. Though a graph will not help you find non-real zeros, it can indicate that the function has non-real zeros. For example, look at the graph of p(x) = x 4 - 2x 2 - 3. Module 7 A2_MNLESE385894_U3M07L2.indd 360 360 y 2 x -4 -2 0 -2 2 4 © Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company The graph intersects the x-axis twice, which shows that the function has two real zeros. By the corollary to the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra, however, a fourth degree polynomial has_four _ zeros. So, the other two zeros of p(x) must be non-real. The zeros are -√3 , √3 , i, and -i. (A polynomial whose graph has a turning point on the x-axis has a real zero of even multiplicity at that point. If the graph “bends” at the x-axis, there is a real zero of odd multiplicity greater than 1 at that point.) 4 Lesson 2 3/19/14 3:22 PM Finding Complex Solutions of Polynomial Equations 360 QUESTIONING STRATEGIES Why do the methods shown in Parts A and B produce the same solution? When you solve the equation p(x) = q(x), you are finding the value of x for which the two functions are equal. Since p(x) is equal to q(x) at this value of x, this is the value that would make their difference, p(x) - q(x), equal to 0. The following polynomial models approximate the total oil consumption C (in millions of barrels per day) for North America (NA) and the Asia Pacific region (AP) over the period from 2001 to 2011, where t is in years and t = 0 represents 2001.

Here are the results for Xmin = 0, Xmax = 10, Ymin = 20, Ymax = 30. (The graph for the Asia Pacific is the one that rises upward on all segments.) The functions intersect at about x = 5, which represents the year 2006. This means that the models show oil consumption in the Asia Pacific equaling and then overtaking oil consumption in North America about 2006.

A fourth degree polynomial function has only the zeros -2, 3, and 4. How can this be true given the requirement of the Corollary of the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra, which states that a polynomial of degree n has exactly n zeros? One of the zeros must occur twice. The corollary requires that repeated zeros be counted multiple times. Elaborate 11. What does the degree of a polynomial function p(x) tell you about the zeros of the function or the roots of the equation p(x) = 0? The degree tells you how many zeros or roots there are when you include complex zeros or roots and count the multiplicities of repeated zeros or roots. 12. A polynomial equation of degree 5 has the roots 0.3, 2, 8, and 10.6 (each of multiplicity 1). What can you conclude about the remaining root? Explain your reasoning.

Since a cubic equation has three roots, at least one of them will be rational (since irrational and imaginary roots occur in conjugate pairs). The other two roots, no matter what type, can be found by factoring or by using the quadratic formula.

Explain that the abbreviations indicate how appropriate the movie is for difference audiences. A G rating means the movie is for General audiences. A PG rating means Parental Guidance is suggested. A PG-13 rating means Parental Guidance is suggested and the movie may not be appropriate for children under age 13. An R rating means entrance is Restricted; an adult must accompany children under 17. In 1984 the MPAA introduced the PG-13 rating to their movie rating system. Recently, scientists measured the incidences of a specific type of violence depicted in movies. The researchers used specially trained coders to identify the specific type of violence in one half of the top grossing movies for each year since 1985. The trend in the average rate per hour of 5-minute segments of this type of violence in movies rated G/PG, PG-13, and R can be modeled as a function of time by the following equations: V G/PG(t) = -0.015t + 1.45 V PG-13(t) = 0.000577t 3 - 0.0225t 2 + 0.26t + 0.8 V R(t) = 2.15 V is the average rate per hour of 5-minute segments containing the specific type of violence in movies, and t is the number of years since 1985. b.

Possible answers include but are not limited to •The rating of PG-13 was poorly understood by the people responsible for rating the films. © Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company •Films released in the years immediately following 1985 had been scripted, filmed, and/or edited before the rating was fully understood by the film studios, so they hadn’t separated the specific type of violence out of the G/PG movies. b. The equations indicate that as t increases, V PG-13(t) will eventually be greater than V G/PG(t). V G/PG(t) is a linear function with a negative first term so its end behavior on the right is decreasing to negative infinity while the leading term of V PG-13(t) is positive, so its end behavior on the right is increasing to infinity. c. The functions intersect at a value of t ≈ 3, which indicates that the average rate per hour of 5-minute segments of violence in movies rated PG-13 first surpassed the average hourly rate in movies rated G/PG in 1988. Module 7 368 INTEGRATE MATHEMATICAL PRACTICES Focus on Communication MP.3 Discuss with students why V PG-13 increases to infinity as t increases.
