Activity number 5: Seize and intercept me


1) x-intercepts: 0, -4, 3
2) x-intercepts: 2, 1, -3
3) x-intercepts: 1, -1, -3
4) x-intercepts: 2, -2
5) x-intercepts: 0, 1, -1, -3, 3
Activity 6 give me more companion
Answers:

1. x-intercepts: -4, -2, 1, 3 y-intercept: 24

0 = (x+4)(x+2)(x-1)(x-3) if any of the expressions in the parenthesis equal zero then y (the left-hand side) will equal
0. So isolate each expression

0 = x +4

x = -4

and so on and so forth...

2. x-intercepts: -5, -3/2, 2, 4 y-intercept: -120

3. x-intercepts: -6,0,4/3 y-intercept: 0

4. x-intercepts: -3,-1,0,1,3 y-intercept: 0

To get the x-intercept/s, you simply have to set your y value to 0. Then solve what value/s of x will result in y=0

To get the y-intercept/s, you simply have to set your x value to 0. Then solve what value/s of y will result in x=0

Activity 7: what is the destiny of my behavior?


We are given the polynomial function y(x) = (x+4)(x+2)(x-1)(x-3).

Now, to get the values of x for y = 0, we just have to make each factor 0. So,

x+4 = 0, means x = -4

x+2 = 0, means x = -2

x-1 = 0, means x = 1

x-3 = 0, means x = 3

This means that for the following values of x: -4, -2, 1, and 3, the value of y = 0. In the
relation to 0 column, of course, we also put y = 0. Remember that the x-axis is just the line
y=0, so for these values of x, the point is on the x-axis.

This is also the answer for question 1, but since it's asking for points, we write it in the (x,y)
notation: (-4,0), (-2,0), (1,0) and (3,0).
For question 2, it asks what we can say about the graph at x < -4. Since - 5<-4, and there is
no other zero of x that is less than -4, we can say that when x <-4, it is still above the x-axis,
because y at x=-5 is above the x-axis. This is because for the graph to be below or on the x-
axis, it has to pass through an x that makes the value of y = 0 first. Since there's none, there
is the same behavior there.

This is the same way we answer questions 3-6, by just taking the behavior at each point. So
before we answer this, let's complete the table first.

We are left with the following values of x: - 3, 0, 2, and 4.

To get the value of y, we just substitute these values of x:

y(-3) = (-3+4)(-3+2)(-3-1)(-3-3) = (1)(-1)(-4)(-6) = -24, so y <0, and below the x-axis. Then, we
can use this point for question 3, and say "Below the x-axis" as well.

y(0) = (0+4)(0+2)(0-1)(0-3) = (4)(2)(-1)(-3) = 24, so y >0, and above the x-axis. We can use
this for question 4.

y(2) = (2+4)(2+2)(2-1)(2-3) = (6)(4)(1)(-1) = -24, so y <0, and below the x-axis. We can use
this for question 5.

y(4) = (4+4)(4+2)(4-1)(4-3) = (8)(6)(3)(1) = 144, so y>0, and above the x-axis. We can use this
for question 6.

line.
