do you kno of synthetic division?

3. burhan101

yes but wont i need to find a factor of 5 that would make the equation equal zero ?

4. burhan101

oh nvm it's -1

5. NotTim

I think so?

6. burhan101

yup it is, thanks :)

7. NotTim

awesome. that all yo uneed? confrimation?

8. burhan101

yes but one more thing

9. burhan101

|dw:1343191358412:dw|

10. burhan101

zeros would be: (x+1) .. and idk which other ones :S

11. burhan101

@lgbasallote any thoughts ?

12. NotTim

for the other zeros, don't you have to solve for x^2+8x+5

13. burhan101

yes but i cant come up with a whole number value for

14. NotTim

do you need a whole number value?

15. burhan101

yes

16. panlac01

$x=-1$ $x=-4-\sqrt{11}$ $x=\sqrt{11}-4$

18. NotTim

if we wanted answers, we'd use wolframalpha.com

19. burhan101

there are no ways of getting whole #s ?

20. NotTim

i never thought it neccessary. why oy uwant?

21. panlac01

check chapter 2 of this textbook http://finedrafts.com/files/Larson%20PreCal%208th/Larson%20Precal%20CH2.pdf I just finished pre-cal last week for summer course

yayy

24. burhan101

this is great ! :D what grade would this be btw ?

looks like the grade 12 advanced functions course material too thank you soooooo much !

29. NotTim

woOOooOO!

30. panlac01

yeah. check out chapters 1-4: linear, quadratic, polynomial and logarithmic functions. you will be able to tell the movements and shifts and of the functions in no time, how many turning points (global/local maximum and minimums), and their values. I use wolfram alpha instead of TI calculators for best FIT models, but not on the problem you posted. I uploaded the whole textbook by Larson et al. to share.

31. burhan101

thanks so much, my exam in in two days .. this will help A LOT !

32. burhan101

the link you gave me was just chapter 2 though, right ?

33. panlac01

yeah. but you can check out finedrafts.com/files and just look for Pre-Cal by Larson et al. the rest are physics and biology textbooks that I used.

34. burhan101

okay thanks again !
