```3.1 #2
In exercises 1 – 4, you’re given an equation and the graph of a quadratic
function. Do each of the following:
The graph needed is in a separate pdf file sent. #3.1 #2 on page 303
a) Give the domain and range
b) Give the coordinates of the vertex
c) Give the equation of the axis
d) Find the y-intercept
e) Find the x-intercepts
f x   x  5   4
2
Ans: a) domain: (-∞,∞) Range: [-4, ∞)
b) (5,-4)
c) x = 5
d) (0, 21)
e) (3, 0) and (7, 0)
Note the arrows. Since you can take any value for x, the domain is all real
numbers (-∞,∞). Your range is correct, except that since -4 is included use a
bracket. The vertex is the minimum or maximum point at (5,-4). The
equation of the axis is the vertical line containing the vertex. The y-intercept
is the point on the graph with x=0. This isn’t shown on this graph, but it does
exist: y = (0-5)2-4 = 25-4 = 21. For the x-intercepts, give the entire point.
3.1 #18
Graph each quadratic function. Give the vertex, axis, domain, and range.
f x   3x  2  1

See Attached for Graph.
Ans: Vertex: (2, 1)
Axis: x = 2
Domain: (-∞, ∞)
Range: (-∞, 1]
By axis, I believe they mean the equation of the axis of symmetry. This is the
line containing the vertex, x = 2. Since any number can be substituted for x,
the domain is all real numbers (-∞,∞). You’re range was correct, but always
write it from smaller to larger, and since 1 is included use a bracket on that
side.
3.1 #24
Graph each quadratic function. Give the vertex, axis, domain, and range.
f x   3x 2  24x  46
See Attached for Graph.
Ans: Vertex: (4, 2)
Axis: x = 4
Domain: (-∞,∞)
Range: (-∞, 2]

College Freshmen Pursuing Medical Degrees. Between 1996 and 2002, the
percent of college freshmen who planned to get a professional degree in a
medical field (that is, M.D., D.O., D.D.S., or D.V.M.) can be modeled by
f x   .07726x 2  .8004x  10.84 ,
where x = 0 represents 1996. (Source: Higher Education Research Institute,
UCLA, 2002.) Based on this model, in what year did the percent of freshmen
planning to get a medical degree reach its minimum?
The minimum is the vertex at x = -b / (2a) = - (-0.8004) / [2 (0.07726)] = 5.2
This is in year 1996 + 5 = 2001

Express f x  in the form f x   x  k q x   r for the given value of k.

Since x – (-4) = x + 4, f(x) = (x + 4) (2x2 - 5x + 4) - 6

Since the remainder is 2, f(3) = 2.

Since the remainder is 793, f(4) = 793.

Use synthetic division to decide whether the given number k is a zero of the
given polynomial function. If it is not, give the value of f k .

So 1 is not a zero of f since f(1) is not 0. f(1) = 7

polynomial is a factor of the first.

Since the remainder is not zero, x+1 is not a factor of 2x3 + x + 2.

Factor f x  into linear factors given that k is a zero of f x .
f x   2x 3  3x 2  5x  6 ;
k=1
Since 1 is a zero of the function, x – 1 is a factor. Divide it out.

The quotient is 2x2 – x – 6. Factoring this, we get (x - 2)(2x + 3)
So the complete factorization is (x - 1) (x - 2) (2x + 3)
3.3 #30
For each polynomial function, one zero is given. Find all others.

So we need to find the other zeros of x3 + (10+i)x2 + (26+10i)x + 26i
The complex conjugate of a solution is often a solution, so let’s try –i.

So –i is also a solution. We are left with x2 + 10x + 26.

Find a polynomial function of degree 3 with real coefficients that satisfies the
given conditions.
Zeros of 2, -3, and 5: f 3  6
f(x) = a (x - 2) (x + 3) (x – 5) for some value of a. Plug in f(3) to find a:
a (1) (6) (-2) = 6, -12 a = 6, a = -1/2.
So f(x) = -1/2 (x-2) (x+3) (x-5) = -1/2 x3 + 2x2 + 11/2 x – 15 after multiplying
it out.
3.3 #54
Find a polynomial function of degree 3 with real coefficients that satisfies the
given conditions.
Zero of 4 having multiplicity 2 and zero of 2 having multiplicity 1;
f 1  18
f(x) = a (x-4)(x-4)(x-2)
a (-3) (-3) (-1) = -18, a = 2
f(x) = 2 (x-4)(x-4)(x-2) = 2x3 – 20x2 + 64x - 64
3.3 #56
Find a polynomial function of least degree having only real coefficients with
zeros as given.

(x – 7 + 2i) (x – 7 – 2i) = x2 – 14x + 53

Graph each polynomial function. Factor first if the expression is not in
factored form.

See Attached for Graph. Looks good.
3.4 #44
Use the intermediate value theorem for polynomials to show that each
polynomial function has a real zero between the numbers given.
f x   3x 2  x  4 ; 1 and 2
f(1) = 3(1) – 1 – 4 = -2
f(2) = 3(4) – 2 – 4 = 6
Since f(x) is continuous and 0 lies between -2 and 6, there is a zero of f(x)
between 1 and 2.
3.4 #54
Show that the real zeros of each polynomial function satisfy the given
conditions.
f x   2x 5  x 4  2x 3  2x 2  4x  4 ; no real zero greater than 1
For f(1) = 2 – 1 + 2 – 2 + 4 – 4 = 1
For x > 1, each positive term is greater than the next negative term, 2x5 > x4,
2x3 > 2x2, and 4x > 4, so the function f(x) > 0 for all x>1. Therefore the
function has no real zeros greater than 1.

Solve each variation problem.
If m varies jointly as z and p, and m = 10 when z = 3 and p = 5, find m when z
= 5 and p = 7.
Since they vary jointly, m = k z p for some value of k. First, find k.
10 = k * 3 * 5, so k = 2/3.
m = 2/3 z p = 2/3 (5) (7) = 70/3 = 23 1/3
3.6 #28
Current in a Circuit. The current in a simple electrical circuit varies inversely
as the resistance. If the current is 50 amps when the resistance is 10 ohms,
find the current if the resistance is 5 ohms.
I = k/R for some value of k
50 = k/10, so k = 500
I = 500/R = 500/5 = 100 amps
3.6 #40
Long Distance Phone Calls. The number of long-distance phone calls
between two cities in a certain time period varies directly as the populations
p1 and p2 of the cities, and inversely as the distance between them. If 10,000
calls are made between two cities 500 mi apart, having populations of 50,000
and 125,000, find the number of calls between two cities 800 mi apart, having
populations of 20,000 and 80,000.
N = k p1 p2 / d
10000 = k (50000) (125000) / 500, k = 0.0008
N = 0.0008 p1 p2 / d = 0.0008 (20000) (80000) / 800 = 1600
3.6 #52
Concept Check. Work each problem.
What happens to y if y is inversely proportional to x, and x is tripled?
y=k/x
If x is tripled, y = k / (3x) = 1/3 (k / x) so y is reduced to one-third of its
original value.
