12) (401:17)
Perform the indicated divisions by synthetic
division.
( x6 + 2x2 − 6 ) ÷ ( x − 2 )

13) (401:29)
Use the factor theorem and synthetic division
to determine whether or not the second
expression is a factor of the first.

15) (405:21)
Solve using synthetic division, given the
root indicated.
x5 − 3x4 − x + 3 = 0 ( r1 = 3, r2 = j )

16) (411:15)
Solve without using a graphing calculator.

12x4 + 44x3 + 21x2 − 11x − 6 = 0

The deflection y of a beam at a horizontal
distance x from one end is given by
y = k( x4 − 2Lx3 + L3x ),
where L is the length of the beam and k is a constant.
For what values of x is the deflection zero?

18) (411:35)
For electrical resistors connected in parallel,
the reciprocal of the combined resistance equals
the sum of the reciprocals of the individual
resistances. If three resistors are connected in
parallel such that the second resistance is 1 ohm
more than the first and the third is 4 ohm more
than the first, find the resistance for a combined
resistance of 1 ohm.

A rectangular tray is made from a square piece
of sheet metal 10.0 cm on a side by cutting equal
squares from each corner, bending up the sides,
and then welding them together. How long is the
side of the square that must be cut if the volume
of the tray is 70.0 cm3?

20) (411:39)
