    f(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.

    f(x) = 2x3 + 5x2 + 6x - 4 1 | 0 ther eis only 1 sign change; so there is 1 positive root

    and 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
