1

## 3 key numbers means

### 4 test regions

2

## do you put brackets around solutions that make the bottom 0

### no

3

## is x^2 + 49 factorable?

###
yes

(x-7i) (x+7i)

4

## The theorem that can be used to determine the possible numbers of positive real zeros and negative real zeros of a function is called __________ __________ of ________

### Descartes's Rule, Signs

5

## the formula that relates cost, revenue, and profit is ______

### profit=revenue-cost

6

## key numbers are ____

### whatever makes the top and bottom 0

7

## how do you find HA if the numerator's degree=denominator's degree

###
y=ratio of leading coefficients

f(x)=2x-5/4-x HA:y=-2

8

## The _______ ________ _______ states that if f(x) is a polynomial of degree n (n>0), then f(x) has precisely n linear factors

### linear factorization theorem

9

## what is intermediate form? is it the same as undefined

### 0/0, no

10

## The _______ _______ of _______ states that if f(x) is a polynomial of degree n (n>0), then f has at least one zero in the complex number system

### fundamental, theorem, algebra

11

## All graphs _____ the asymptotes

### Follow

12

## Increasing and decreasing intervals use the ___ values

### X (watch asymptotes)

13

## what is upper bound

###
you plug in a higher number and get all positive sums in return

this will be your highest zero

14

## Make sure graphs don't cross if there aren't enough X intercepts

### ..

15

## When finding key points of rational functions ___ first

### Simplify

16

## how do you find the vertical asymptote

###
whatever makes the denominator 0

roots of denominator

x=

be sure to factor function first as asymptotes might cancel

17

## for the rational function f(x)=N(x)/D(x), if the degree of N(x) is exactly one more than the degree of D(x), then the graph of f has a ______ (or oblique) ________

### slant asymptote

18

## how do you factor a perfect cube

###
in the first (), take the cubed root of both variables in the equation

in the second (), first, put in whatever you need to get the leading coefficient, then put in the opposite of the product of the first (), then whatever you need to get the constant

19

## slant asymptotes and parabolic asymptotes all begin with

###
y=

so do HA

VA begins with x=

### (x)(x)(x)(x)(x)(x)(1-x)

22

## Why is x^4 + x^2-60 guaranteed two real roots

### It's down 60 going up eternally

23

## Increasing and decreasing intervals use the ___ values

### X (watch asymptotes)

24

### critical/key, test intervals

26

## what is DesCartes's Rule of signs

###
the number of positive real zeros=the number of sign variations or less than that by an even integer

the number of negative real zeros=the number of sign variations at

f(-x) or less than that by an even integer

27

you plug in a negative number and get alternating sums in return,

this will be your lowest zero
