1. (a) Given the following equation, use synthetic division to test the following 3 pts and show which one is a root. Must show synthetic division for all 3 of the following test pts. Test these 3 possible root pts also called possible zeros

using synthetic division. (x,y) = (-1, 0) ; (-3, 0) ; (2, 0).

2. Using the rational root theorem, list the possible zeros:

Using p/q list all the possible zeros of the following equation 3x^2 – 7 = 0.

Hint: there are 8 correct answers.

Suggested format for answer:

List factors of p:

List factors of q:

List possible zeros: +/- p/q

3. Simplify the expression using synthetic division. Show your work just an answer without showing the synthetic division will get a zero grade. After doing the synthetic division, which gives you just coefficients. Convert the coefficient quotient answer, into a polynomial with variable x and the correct exponent powers in it. Convert your coefficient answer into a polynomial.

Hint: remember to fill in any missing degree terms in your dividend with coefficients that are zero to represent missing place holders.
