    number of roots of first differentiation decides total number of minima and maxima , after one differentiation you will get highest order of 56 so it will have 56 roots and therefore total number is 56

    hello because P(x) is a strictly increasing function since\[P'(x)=57x^{56}+77x^{10}+3>0\]

    but P(x) starts from (0,-1000), wouldnt it cross 0 in some time?

    no, it would not it will tend to zero but won't cross zero

    P'(x) is strictly increasing.. that doesnt help saying it wont cross 0...

    not P'(x) but P(x) is strictly increasing (why?) and P(x) is continous ...so there are no local Max or Min but there is a one root
