I know a 5th degree polynomial is like ax^5 + ax^4 + ax^3 + ax^2 + ax + c

Right, and where does a polynomial have a root? When it crosses the 'x-axis' right?

it is negative then positive then negative then positive

has a root in between each change in sign any polynomial is continuous, can't skip numbers

^Indeed In order to have a real root, we just see how many times the values alternate from - to +
johnweldon1993

Or + to - of course

well with the numbers given to us at least for p(x)

Well we start at -30 and go to 22....so thats 1 root and we go from 34 to -130 ....make that 2 roots And finally we go from that -130 to 222...so I count 3 roots

So just to make sure I understand this, Say we have x=1,2,3,4,5,6 p(x)= -55, 100, 200, -225, 300, -325 So this would have; -55 to 100, 1 root 200 to -225, 2 roots -225 to 300, 3 roots 300 to -325, 4 roots ?
