    1) Factor the polynomial and use the factored form to find the zeros.
    P(x) = x^3 â?' x^2 â?' 72x
    x = (smallest value)
    x =
    x = (largest value)

    2) Factor the polynomial and use the factored form to find the zeros.
    P(x) = x^4 â?' 3x^3 + 2x^2

    x = (smallest value)
    x =
    x =
    x = (largest value)

    3) Factor the polynomial and use the factored form to find the zeros.
    P(x) = x^5 â?' 9x^3
    x = (smallest value)
    x =
    x = (largest value)

    4) Factor the polynomial and use the factored form to find the zeros.
    P(x) = x^3 + x^2 â?' x â?' 1
    x = (smallest value)
    x =
    x = (largest value)

    5) Factor the polynomial and use the factored form to find the zeros.
    P(x) = x^4 â?' 6x^3 â?' 216x + 1296
    x = (smaller value)
    x = (larger value)

    6) Factor the polynomial and use the factored form to find the zeros.
    P(x) = x6 â?' 16x^3 + 64
    x = (smaller value)
    x = (larger value)

    7) A graphing calculator is recommended.

    Determine the end behavior of P.
    P(x) = x^4 â?' 3x^2 + 9x + 4
    y â?'____as x â?' â??
    y â?'____as x â?' â?'â??

    8)A graphing calculator is recommended.

    Determine the end behavior of P.
    P(x) = x^11 â?' 5x^9
    y â?'____as x â?' â??
    y â?'____as x â?' â?'â??
