1.) Solve the equation12x^3+x^29/2 x1=)given that 1/2 is a root
2.) Use decartes Rule of signs to determine the possible number of positive and negative real zero's for, f(x)=3x^4+2x^36x^2+x+4
3.) The equation for f is given by the simplified expression that results after performing he indicated operation. Write the equation for f and then graph the function

I'll help you through 1. Given that 1/2 is a root, use synthetic division to find (12x^3+x^29/2 x1)/(x+1/2)

2) Descartes' rule of signs state that number of +ve real roots of a polynomial arranged in descending power of exponents is equal to sign changes of its coefficient. Here, f(x)=3x^4+2x^36x^2+x+4 No. of sign changes = 3 so, no. of +ve real roots is 3. Now, as degree of this polynomial is 4, it can have a max. of 4 real roots, if 3 are +ve then the remaining one must be ve.

4) Thats called Hooke's law. It has an equation similar to this form : F = k.x [ Force is proportional to distance to which spring is streched ] You can substitute 1st set of given information [ A pound can stretch 8 inches as F and x ] get the value of k and get other required values.
