However, it looks rather like a quadratic. In fact, it is quadratic in x 2 , meaning that it is (x 2 ) 2 − 5(x 2 ) + 6 = y 2 − 5y + 6 where y = x 2 . The quadratic y 2 − 5y + 6 factors as y 2 − 5y + 6 = ( y − 3)( y − 2) so x 4 − 5x 2 + 6 = (x 2 − 3)(x 2 − 2) This is a sometimes useful technique. Our last example is here to remind you why we should want to factor polynomials in the first place. We shall return to this in Section 5. Example 4 Solving a Quadratic Equation by Factoring Solve the equation 3x 2 + 4x − 4 = 0.

Can’t we get a formula that gives the cumulative net income data exactly ? ” When we write a function in this form, the variable x is the independent variable and y is the dependent variable. We could also write the above function as f = x 2 − 25x + 15, in which case the dependent variable would be f. using Technology Evaluating a function can be tedious to do by hand, but various technologies make this task easier. See the Technology Guides at the end of the chapter to find out how to create a table like the one in Example 3, using a TI-83/84 or Excel.

5 4 What we mean by an “algebraic formula” is a formula in the coefficients using the operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and the taking of radicals. ” If you were a math major, you would eventually go on to study this under the heading of Galois Theory. 5 Both Abel (1802–1829) and Galois (1811–1832) died young. Abel died of tuberculosis at the age of 26, while Galois was killed in a duel at the age of 20. 5 EXERCISES Solve the equations in Exercises 1–12 for x (mentally, if possible).
