    derivative is 4x^3 + 3 4x^3 + 3 < 0 for negative gradient x^3 < -3/4 x < (-3/4)^(1/3) = approx -0.9 this is greater than -1 so the graph is decreasing over the period -2,-1 find value of function atx = -2 and -1 f(-2) = (-2)^4 + 3(-2) + 1 = 11 f(-1) = -2 meaning it has crossed the x-axis at most once over the period
