The zeros of a fourth degree polynomial 2013-01-23
Dakota pose la question :
My problem has multiple steps and I have done everything but the last one. 8The original problem is f(x)=x^4-5x^3+7x^2+3x-10 and I have to find the zeros of the equation. I used synthetic substitution like my teacher taught us to get the equation of x^3-3x^2+x+5=0 but now I don't know how to get the zeros of that equation, or solve it.

The sum of the roots of a quartic 2009-04-21
dave pose la question :
This is a algebra problem that i am confused about: The sum of the roots of x^4-x^3+5x^2+4=0 is: i tried graphing it, but it shows that there are no roots, but the answer is 1. are they wrong?

Designing a garage 2006-06-08
A builder pose la question :
I'm currently designing a garage and came upon this interesting math problem. I've tried using various methods to solve it but have so far been unsuccessful. I've included a picture as its far easier to show you my question than explain it verbally. I realize it could be done by trial and error but i'm looking for a real solution.

Two intersecting graphs 2003-04-23
Patty pose la question :

a) graph the equation

x2 - y - 4 = 0

x2 + y2 = 9
on the same set of coordinate axes.

I did not have a problem with this.

The problem is part (b) of the question ask: Find all solutions of the system in part (a) algebraically. Express answers in decimal form, accurate to two decimal places.

A quartic equation 2001-02-15
George pose la question :
Let P(x) = x4 + ax3 + bx2 + cx + d. The graph of y = P(x) is symmetric with respect to the y-axis, has a relative max. at (0,1) and has an absolute min. at (q, -3)

a) determine the values for a, b c, and d using these values, write an equation for P(x)
b) find all possible values for q.

A ladder problem 1999-04-22
Michael Blade pose la question :
There is a cube box 3feet x 3feet x 3ft resting against a vertical wall on level ground. Resting against the outside corner of the box is a ladder 10 feet tall, this ladder is of course resting on the ground but also against the outside corner of the box and rests on the wall.

The question- the ladder is divided into two unequal section bounded by the box to the ground and the box to the wall. what are those dimensions?
