    for \(x\le0\) its obvious that \(x^8 -x^7 + x^2 -x +15 >0\) u just prove for \(x>0\) : \(x^8 -x^7 + x^2 -x +15 >0\)

    for x>1 ,, x^8 > x^7 and x^2 >x so f(x) > 0 for x>1 for 0<x<1 , x> x^2 > x^7 > x^8 we then have 15 - (fraction + fraction) ,,which is obviously >0 so f(x) is always >0 am i right ?
