Answer #1

Let p be an odd prime. Let f(x) ∈ Q(x) be an irreducible
polynomial of degree p whose Galois group is the dihedral group
D_2p of a regular p-gon. Prove that f (x) has either all real roots
or precisely one real root.

write the polynomial equation f(x) in factored form with leading
coefficient -2, and zeros -1(double root), 1 (single root), and 3
(single root).
A) write f(x) in factored form
B) What is its degree?
C) what is its y-intercept
D) sketch the graph showing the zeros and y-intercept

Let f(x) be a cubic polynomial of the form x^3 +ax^2 +bx+c with
real coefficients.
1. Deduce that either f(x) factors in R[x] as the product of
three degree-one
polynomials, or f(x) factors in R[x] as the product of a
degree-one
polynomial and an irreducible degree-two polynomial.
2.Deduce that either f(x) has three real roots (counting
multiplicities) or
f(x) has one real root and two non-real (complex) roots that are
complex
conjugates of each other.

True or False, explain:
1. Any polynomial f in Q[x] with deg(f)=3 and no roots in Q is
irreducible.
2. Any polynomial f in Q[x] with deg(f)-4 and no roots in Q is
irreducible.
3. Zx40 is isomorphic to
Zx5 x Zx8
4. If G is a finite group and H<G, then [G:H] = |G||H|
5. If [G:H]=2, then H is normal in G.
6. If G is a finite group and G<S28, then there is
a subgroup of G...

Prove any polynomial of an odd degree must have a real root.

Consider the polynomial f(x) = x ^4 + x ^3 + x ^2 + x + 1 with
roots in GF(256). Let b be a root of f(x), i.e., f(b) = 0.

e) Write b 4 as a combination of smaller powers of b.
Prove that b 5 = 1. f) Given that b 5 = 1 and the factorization

1. This question is on the Taylor polynomial.
(a) Find the Taylor Polynomial p3(x) for f(x)= e^ x sin(x) about
the point a = 0.
(b) Bound the error |f(x) − p3(x)| using the Taylor Remainder
R3(x) on [−π/4, π/4].
(c) Let pn(x) be the Taylor Polynomial of degree n of f(x) =
cos(x) about a = 0. How large should n be so that |f(x) − pn(x)|
< 10^−5 for −π/4 ≤ x ≤ π/4 ?

1) find a cubic polynomial with only one root
f(x)=ax^3+bx^2+cx +d such that it had a two cycle using Newton’s
method where N(0)=2 and N(2)=0
2) the function G(x)=x^2+k for k>0 must ha e a two cycle
for Newton’s method (why)? Find the two cycle

Let f(x) be a polynomial and let r be a root of f(x). If x_1 is
sufficiently close to r then x_2 = i(x_1) is closer, x_3 = i(x_2)
is closer still, etc. Here i(x) = x - f(x)/f'(x) is what we called
the improvement function
a. Let f(x)=x^2-10. Compute i(x) in simplified form (i.e.
everything in one big fraction involving x). Let r = sqrt(10) and
x_1=3. Show a hand computation of x_2 and then x_3, expressing both
your...
