# Ch 9: Solving Problems with Polynomial Functions

These lessons on solving problems with polynomial functions will teach you about basic polynomial graphs and cubic functions. The lessons in this chapter are valuable when preparing for a test or working on class assignments.

## Solving Problems with Polynomial Functions - Chapter Summary

In these lessons on solving problems with polynomial functions, you will learn how exponents alter the behavior of graphs. You will also gain a clearer understanding of how to find x-intercepts and y-intercepts. By the end of the chapter, you should be positioned to:

• Use terminology associated with polynomial functions
• Explain basic polynomial graphs
• Compare properties of functions graphically
• Identify maximum and minimum values of a graph
• Find and apply intercepts of a line
• Use the rational zeros theorem and synthetic division to find rational zeros
• Write polynomial equations using rational and complex zeros
• Define cubic function

These lessons can help you quickly understand how to solve problems with polynomial functions. You have the option of reviewing all the lessons in the chapter, or just specific lessons based on your needs. A brief quiz is available for each lesson to test your knowledge.
