Synthetic Division

Show all necessary work. The test is worth 106 points.
For problems 1-6, use f(x) = 8x – 13 and g(x) = x2 – 5. (5 points each)
1. (f + g) (-2) = __________ 4. (f – g) (3) = __________
2. (fg) (2) = __________ 5. (f ◦ g) (1) = __________
3. (g ◦ f) (1) = __________ 6. f-1(x) = __________

(4 points each) For problems 7 and 8, given the graph of y = f(x), sketch the graph of:

7. y = f(x + 2) + 3

8. y = -2 f(x)

9. Let f(x) = 2x2 + 8x – 5.
a) (5 points) Find the vertex.

b) (5 points) Write f(x) in shifted form.

10. Let f(x) = 3x3 – 7x2 – 22x + 8.
a) (5 points) Use the Rational Zero Theorem to list all possible rational
zeroes of f(x).

b) (5 points) Find all of the zeroes of f(x). Use synthetic division if necessary.

c) (4 points) Write f(x) in factored form.

11. (8 points) Let f(x) = x3 + 5x2 – 3x – 27. Given that x = -3 is a zero of this
polynomial, use synthetic division and the quadratic formula to find the other
two zeroes.

Multiple Choice (4 points each) Choose the best response.

12. Let f(x) be a one-to-one function with domain What is ?
a) 5 b) -5 c) − 1/5 d) cannot be determined

13. Let f(x) = 2x2 – 11x – 40. Find the axis of symmetry.

14. Let f(x) = 2x2 – 11x – 40. Find the x-intercepts.
a) (-2.5, 0) and (8, 0) c) (2.5, 0) and (-8, 0)
b) (2.5, 0) and (8, 0) d) (-2.5, 0) and (8, 0)

15. When a polynomial f(x) is divided by x – 4 using synthetic division, the last line
of the synthetic division is:

a) 2x6– 3x5 + 5x4 + 4x3 + 11x2 – x + 2
b) 2x5 – 3x4 + 5x3 + 4x2 + 11x – 1
c) cannot be determined because we don't know f(x)

16. When a polynomial f(x) is divided by x + 3 using synthetic division, the last line
of the synthetic division is:

What is f(-3)?
a) cannot be determined b) 8 c) 7
because we don't know f(x)

Use f(x) = -3 (x + 2)5 (x – 1)6(x – 5)2 (2x + 3)2 for problems 17-20.
