Text Solution

 

What is known?

The graphs of \(y{ }={ }p\left( x \right)\) are given in the above figure for some polynomials \(p\left( x \right).\)

What is unknown?

The number of zeroes of \(p\left( x \right),\) in each case.

Reasoning:

You can reach the solution easily by understanding the statement of the question. As The graphs of \(y{ }={ }p\left( x \right)\) are given and you have to find the number of zeroes of \(p\left( x \right),\) in each case.

To find this look at the graphs and visually find how many points it cuts the \(x\)–axis. The number of points the graph cuts or touches the \(x\)–axis. The number of points it cut or touches the \(x\)- axis are the zeroes of the polynomial \(p\left( x \right).\)

Steps:

(i) The number of zeroes is \(0\) as the graph doesn’t cuts the \(x\)–axis at any point.

(ii) The number of zeroes is \(1\) as the graph cuts the \(x\)–axis at only one point.

(iii) The number of zeroes is \(3\) as the graph cuts the \(x\)–axis at \(3\) points.

(iv) The number of zeroes is \(2\) as the graph cuts the \(x\)–axis at \(2\) points.

(v) The number of zeroes is \(4\) as the graph cuts the \(x\)–axis at \(4\) points.

(vi) The number of zeroes is \(3\) as the graph cuts the \(x\)–axis at  \(3 \) points.
