I understand that when we want to get x values for the following:
we look at the sections where both graphs are either positive or negative
we look at all sections where one graph is positive or negative and the other, negative or positive, respectively.
Or greater than zero?
This question aplies to \(f(x)=3x^3-21x^2+45x-27\)
Thank you kindly..
Same story, one of the two has to be negative and the other has to be positive .....and neither can be zero.
For GREATER than zero both have to be positive ....or both have to be negative.
DO you need more than that?
so then...there will be no difference between the answers of
because in both instances the criteria is the same...one equation must be negative or positive, while the other is positive or negative, respectively?
Numerically, there will be different answers.
-12 * 3 = -36
-12/3 = -4
But I think the domain expressions will be the same.....
Thank you kindly...just was not sure about the domain expressions..do appreciate.
The 'domain expressions' are the areas ..or values...of 'x' that satisfy your equation..
like from x = 3 to infinity ( 3 < x < + inf)
or from x = 1.5 to 3 which would be ( 1.5 < x < 3)
Look at the graph and see if you can decide from that:
Here are graphs of the individual functions:
In the second graph you can see where the individual functions are + or - ....
or where they are both - or both +
If you look closely wou will see + and - up until approx x = '1' then a little bit of both + until x ~ 1.5 then + - again up until 3
then both + above 3
this is graphed in the upper picture you can see where the division of the two is negative then a small bit of positive...then negative up to x=3 then positivr above x = 3
