Products and Factors of Polynomials
DAY 2
Objectives:
 Day 1
 Multiply polynomials.
 Factor polynomials.
 Day 2
 Use substitution to determine factors of a function.
 Divide by using long division.
 Day 3
 Divide by using synthetic division.
Find the zeros of the function:
1.) What are the zeros
of the function?
2.) Now, write the
factors of the function!
Practice #2:
1.) Find the zeros
2.) Write the factors of the function
Practice #2:
Find the zeros, write the factors, and then write the
equation of the function.
The Factor Theorem states the relationship between the
linear factors of a polynomial expression and the zeros of
the related polynomial.
FACTOR Ex
THEOREM
x-r is a factor of the polynomial expression that defines the
function P if and only if r is a solution of P(x) =0, that is if and
only if P(r)=0.
EXAMPLE: Use substitution to determine whether x+2
is a factor of : x³ - 2x² - 5x + 6.
Practice: Use substitution to determine whether the
given linear expression is a factor of the polynomial.
