Polynomial factoring, zeros and end behavior

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??
