Polynomials : Roots, Holes and Vertical Asymptotes

#1: f(x)=(1x^3-18x^2+101x-168)/(1x^3-2x^2-41x+42) Find: All Roots:? All Holes:? All Vertical Asymptotes:? The answer to the 1st question is NOT 8 or -8. #2: f(x)= (-2x^3+37x^2-222x+432)/(1x^3+3x^2-64x-192) I need the roots: (I have two of them (9/2) and (6) but I need the third)? I need to know the hol

Simplifying Polynomials and Collecting Like Terms

Section 4.3 Collect like terms. 4 4 52. 3a - 2a + 2a + a Collect like terms and then arrange in descending order. 3 3 4 66. -1 + 5x - 3 - 7x + x + 5 Classify the polynomial as a monomial, binomial, trinomial, or none o

Binary Representations and Prime Factors

1- For n belongs to N (set of natural numbers) let B(n) denote the number of digits used in the binary representation of n. For example B(1) = 1; B(2) = 2; B(3) = 2; B(4) = 3: Find a closed formula for B(n) for an arbitrary n belongs to N. 2: Prove that if gcd(a, b) = d then a/d and b/d are relatively prime. 3- Find

Theory of Numbers : Fibonacci Number

Suppose that F1 = 1, F2 = 1, F3 =1, F4 = 3, F5 = 5, and in general Fn = Fn-1 + Fn-2 for n ≥ 3 ( Fn is called the nth Fibonacci number.) Prove that F1 + F2 + F3 +...+ Fn = F(n + 2) - 1
