 The zeros of a fourth degree polynomial 2013-01-23 From Dakota: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.Answered by Penny Nom. A quartic equation 2010-05-18 From Austin:Z^4-10z^2=-9Answered by Penny Nom. A quartic equation 2001-02-15 From George: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.

How wide is the well? 1999-11-24 From Chris Baranski:There is a well and in the well there are 2 sticks one is 2 meters long the other is 3 meters long and they are opposite to each other. They are leaning against the wall of the well. The place where they touch is 1 meter of the bottom of the well. How wide is the well?Answered by Chris Fisher. A ladder problem 1999-04-22 From Michael Blade: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?Answered by Penny Nom.
