Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1f(x) = 2x^3  5x^2 + 6x  4 There are 3 or 1 possible positive zeros. f(x) = 2x^3  5x^2  6x  4 There are no possible negative zeros. There are possibly 2 complex zeros.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2f(x) = 2x3 + 5x2 + 6x  4 1  0 ther eis only 1 sign change; so there is 1 positive root

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2and the only difference between the 1 positive options is a complex or not if there are 2 or 0; that implies complex roots as well
