Math 1314 Chapter 3 Review

1. Graph the parabola whose equations is f (x) = −x2 − 2x + 8 . Label the vertex. Also
label one point on each branch of the parabola. Find the y- intercept and any
x-intercepts. State the domain and range of the function.

2. Use synthetic division to find the quotient and remainder if 2x4 − 3x3 + x2 − 5 is
divided by x + 3.

3. Use synthetic division and the reminder theorem to find f (-3) if
f (x) = x4 + 2x3 −8x2 +10x − 5 .

4. Use synthetic division and the factor theorem to decide if x + 3 is a factor of
f (x) = x3 + 4x2 + x − 6 .

5. Find a polynomial function of degree three with real coefficients having zeros 1, and
2 – 3i, and f (2) = 27.

6. If i is a zero of f (x) = x4 + 2x3 − 7x2 + 2x −8 , find the remaining zeros by using
synthetic division.

7. State all the zeros and their multiplicities of :
f (x) = x3 (2x +1)(x − 4)2 (x −1− i)(x −1+ i)

8. Completely factor f (x) = 6x3 + 25x2 − 24x + 5 if -5 is a zero of f (x) .

9. Use Descartes’ Rule of Signs to determine the possible number if positive and
negative zeros of f (x) = 3x3 −13x2 +17x +15 .

10. Determine if -2 is a lower bound and also determine if 1 is an upper bound for the
zeros of f (x) = 2x3 + 2x2 + 4x + 2 .

11. Find all the zeros of f (x) = 2x3 − 5x2 − 46x + 24 by using the rational zero theorem
and synthetic division.

12. Find all the zeros of f (x) = 2x3 −8x2 −14x + 20 by using the rational zero theorem
and synthetic division and then graph f (x) by labeling the y-intercept, the xintercepts,
and by determining the end behavior.

13. Use the intermediate value theorem to determine if there is a zero between 0 and 1
for f (x) = x3 − 4x2 + 2 .

14. Use the intermediate value theorem and synthetic division to estimate the zero
between x = 3 and x = 4 to the nearest tenth of f (x) = x3 −10x − 3 .

For problems 15 and 16, Graph each rational function by identifying any
y-intercept, x-intercept(s), and vertical asymptote(s), and horizontal asymptote, or
any slanted asymptote.
