48 CHAPTER Polynomial and Rational Functions Example: Using the function Px x x 1 3 x 1, (f) Find the x- and y-intercepts. (g) Sketch the graph of the function. Be sure to show all x- and y-intercepts, along with the proper behavior at each x-intercept, as well as the proper end behavior. (a) The x-intercepts of the function occur when P x 0, so we must solve the equation 3 x x 1 x 1 0 Set each factor equal to zero and solve for x. Solving x 0, we see that the graph has an x-intercept of 0. Solving x 1 3 0, we see that the graph has an x-intercept of 1. Solving x 1 0 we see that the graph has an x-intercept of University of Houston Department of Mathematics

49 SECTION. Polynomial Functions To find the y-intercept, find 3 P x Therefore, the y-intercept is 0. P 0. (In other words, let x 0.) (b) Next, we will determine the degree of the function. Look at the highest power of x in each factor (along with its sign). If this polynomial were to be multiplied out, it would 6 be of the form P x x... (the rest of the polynomial need not be shown; we are simply determining the end behavior of the graph). Remember that for the graph of any even function, both tails of the function either go up together, or down together. Since there is a positive leading coefficient, we know that the end behavior of this function will look something like this: Next, place the x and y-intercepts on a set of axes, and determine the behavior at each intercept. The x-intercepts of -1, 0, and 1 are shown on the graph below, along with the y- intercept of 0. Because the polynomial has degree 6 and the leading coefficient is positive, we know that both tails go upward, as indicated by the arrows on the graph above. We now need to consider the behavior at each x-intercept. Let us deal first with the leftmost and rightmost x-intercepts (the ones which are affected by the upward-rising tails ). The behavior at x 1 resembles the behavior of y x 1. We know that y x 1 is a line, but since we are drawing a polynomial, the behavior at this intercept will have some curvature in its shape. The behavior at 1 x resembles the behavior of 3 y x 1, so this portion of the graph resembles the behavior of a cubic graph. We know that it goes upward from left to right rather than downward from left to right, because of the end behavior which has already been discussed. (Both tails need to point upward.). The behavior at x 0 resembles the behavior of y x, so this portion of the graph will resemble the shape of a parabola. It needs to connect to the other parts of the graph (and the nly x-intercepts are -1, 0, and 1). Therefore, this parabola-type shape at x 0 needs to point downward, as shown below. MATH 1330 Precalculus 189

50 CHAPTER Polynomial and Rational Functions y x We then connect the remainder of the graph with a smooth curve. The actual graph is shown below. y x Note that aside from plotting points, we do not yet have the tools to know the exact shape of the graph in Figure 3. We would not know the exact value, for example, of the relative minimum which is shown in the graph above between x 1 and x 0. It is important that you show the basic features shown in Figure (end behavior, intercepts, and the general behavior at each intercept), and then quickly sketch the rest of the graph with a smooth curve. Example: 7 1 Using the function Px x 4x x 1, (a) Find the x- and y-intercepts. (b) Sketch the graph of the function. Be sure to show all x- and y-intercepts, along with the proper behavior at each x-intercept, as well as the proper end behavior. 190 University of Houston Department of Mathematics

51 SECTION. Polynomial Functions (a) The x-intercepts of the function occur when P x 0, so we must solve the equation x x x Set each factor equal to zero and solve for x. Solving x 4 0, we see that the graph has an x-intercept of 4. Solving x 7 0, we see that the graph has an x-intercept of. Solving x 1 1 0, we see that the graph has an x-intercept of 1. To find the y-intercept, find P 0. (In other words, let x 0.) P x Therefore, the y-intercept is 51. (b) Next, we will determine the degree of the function. Look at the highest power of x in each factor (along with its sign). If this polynomial were to be multiplied out, it would 0 be of the form Px x... (the rest of the polynomial need not be shown; we are simply determining the end behavior of the graph). Remember that for the graph of any even function, both tails of the function either go up together, or down together. Since there is a negative leading coefficient, we know that the end behavior of this function will look something like this: Next, place the x and y-intercepts on a set of axes, and determine the behavior at each intercept. y x -51 MATH 1330 Precalculus 191

52 CHAPTER Polynomial and Rational Functions The x-intercepts of -1,, and 4 are shown on the graph, along with the y-intercept of 51. Because the polynomial has degree 0 and the leading coefficient is negative, we know that both tails go downward, as indicated by the arrows on the graph above. We now need to consider the behavior at each x-intercept. The behavior at 1 x resembles the behavior of y x 1 1. Notice the even exponent; this portion of the graph will resemble the shape of a parabola (though it is even more flattened out near the x-axis than what is shown in the graph above). Notice that this parabola-type shape points downward because of the end behavior which has already been discussed. The behavior at x resembles the behavior of 7 y x. Notice the odd exponent; this resembles the behavior of a cubic graph (and since the exponent is higher, is more flattened near the x-axis than a cubic graph). We know that it goes upward from left to right rather than downward, because the graph needs to pass through the y-intercept 0, 51 before passing through the point, 0. The behavior at x 4 resembles that of y ( x 4). This portion of the graph goes through the point 4, 0 as would the line y x 4. We know from our previous discussion that the end behavior of the polynomial must point downward (as indicated by the arrow on the right side of the graph). Since the function is a polynomial (and not a line), we see a slight curvature as the graph passes through x Based on the analysis above, a rough sketch of Px x 4x x 1 shown below. y is x University of Houston Department of Mathematics

53 SECTION. Polynomial Functions Note: The graph above is only a rough sketch which gives an idea of the behavior of the graph, and is sufficient for the purpose of this course. In reality, the behavior near x 1 and x is more flattened (very close to the x-axis). Moreover, this graph has y-values of a very large magnitude because of the large exponents in the polynomial function. The analysis shown below is beyond the scope of the Math 1330 course, but is included to show you what the graph of the above function really looks like. We could try to make the graph more accurate by plugging values into the function, but we would quickly realize that a true picture of the graph would be difficult to even illustrate on this page. For example, 1-1,88 f 3 16,777,16 -- and these f and do not even represent the lowest and highest points in those regions of the graph! (Methods of finding the minimum and maximum values are learned in Calculus.) If we scale the graph to show the true y-values, the y-intercept of -51 will appear to be at the origin, because the scale on the graph will be so large. y x A closeup is shown below to show the actual behavior of the graph between x 3 and x 3. The graph below does not show the portion of the graph which shoots high up and comes down through the point (4, 0). MATH 1330 Precalculus 193

It should be noted again that the first rough sketch was sufficient for the purposes of this course.

89 Exercise Set.3: Rational Functions Recall from Section 1. that an even function is symmetric with respect to the y-axis, and an odd function is symmetric with respect to the origin. This can sometimes save time in graphing rational functions. If a function is even or odd, then half of the function can be graphed, and the rest can be graphed using symmetry.
