Cartesian form and definition via ordered pairs[ edit ] A complex number can thus be identified with an ordered pair Re zIm z in the Cartesian plane, an identification sometimes known as the Cartesian form of z. In fact, a complex number can be defined as an ordered pair a, bbut then rules for addition and multiplication must also be included as part of the definition see below. Complex plane Figure 1:
Think of a polynomial graph of higher degrees degree at least 3 as quadratic graphs, but with more twists and turns. The same is true with higher order polynomials. If we can factor polynomials, we want to set each factor with a variable in it to 0, and solve for the variable to get the roots.
This is because any factor that becomes 0 makes the whole expression 0. This is the zero product property: So, to get the roots zeros of a polynomial, we factor it and set the factors to 0. Note these things about polynomials: These are also the roots.
We see that the end behavior of the polynomial function is: Notice also that the degree of the polynomial is even, and the leading term is positive. End Behavior and Leading Coefficient Test There are certain rules for sketching polynomial functions, like we had for graphing rational functions.
Again, the degree of a polynomial is the highest exponent if you look at all the terms you may have to add exponents, if you have a factored form.
The leading coefficient of the polynomial is the number before the variable that has the highest exponent the highest degree. In factored form, sometimes you have to factor out a negative sign. If there is no exponent for that factor, the multiplicity is 1 which is actually its exponent!
And remember that if you sum up all the multiplicities of the polynomial, you will get the degree! The total of all the multiplicities of the factors is 6, which is the degree. Also note that sometimes we have to factor the polynomial to get the roots and their multiplicity. Here are the multiplicity behavior rules and examples:When a polynomial function is written in standard form, the number of changes in sign of the coefficients is the maximum number of positive zeros of the function.
The actual number of positive zeros may be less than the maximum by an even amount. If i is a zero of a polynomial with integer coefficients, then the conjugate 3+2i must also be a zero of this polynomial.
Therefore, the polynomial is at least quadratic (degree 2). In Exercises —, find a polynomial function with real coefficients that has the given zeros.

Write a polynomial function of minimum degree with real coefficients whose zeros include those listed. Write the polynomial in standard form. 4, -8, and 2 + 3i f(x) = x4 - 6x3 + 12x2. Find rational zeros of polynomial functions 3. Find conjugate pairs of complex zeros 4. Writing a Polynomial given the zeros. To write a polynomial you must write the zeros First, write the zeros in factored form. Second, multiply the factors out.
Note: Many times we’re given a polynomial in Standard Form, and we need to find the zeros or roots. We typically do this by factoring, like we did with Quadratics in the Solving Quadratics by Factoring and Completing the Square section.
We also did more factoring in the Advanced Factoring section.
