Finding Zeros of FunctionsRecall that a zero of a function is an x-intercept of the graph of the function.Finding the Zeros of a FunctionThe graph of f (x) (x 3)(x2 x 2) is shown. Find the zeros of f.y6SOLUTIONThe x-intercepts are 1, 2, and 3.So, the zeros of fare 1, 2, and 3.2 44 22Check 3 2) 0 f (2) (2 3)(22 2 2) 04 x1 f ( 1) ( 1 3)[( 1)2 ( 1) 2] 0f (3) (3 f(x) (x 3)(x 2 x 2)3)(32The zeros of a function are not necessarily integers. To approximate zeros, analyze thesigns of function values. When two function values have different signs, a zero liesbetween the x-values that correspond to the function values.Approximating the Zeros of a FunctionThe graph of f (x) x2 4x 1 is shown.Approximate the zeros of f to the nearest tenth.y2SOLUTION 4There are two x-intercepts: one between 4 and 3,and another between 1 and 0. 33Make tables using x-values between 4 and 3, andbetween 1 and 0.

Solving Real-Life ProblemsReal-Life ApplicationA football player kicks a football 2 feet above the ground with an initial verticalvelocity of 75 feet per second. The function h 16t2 75t 2 represents theheight h (in feet) of the football after t seconds. (a) Find the height of the football eachsecond after it is kicked. (b) Use the results of part (a) to estimate when the height ofthe football is 50 feet. (c) Using a graph, after how many seconds is the football50 feet above the ground?SOLUTIONSeconds, tHeight, h021612883834465 23a. Make a table of values starting with t 0 seconds using an incrementof 1. Continue the table until a function value is negative.The height of the football is 61 feet after 1 second, 88 feet after 2 seconds,83 feet after 3 seconds, and 46 feet after 4 seconds.b. From part (a), you can estimate that the height of the football is 50 feet between0 and 1 second and between 3 and 4 seconds.Based on the function values, it is reasonable to estimate that the height of thefootball is 50 feet slightly less than 1 second and slightly less than 4 secondsafter it is kicked.c. To determine when the football is 50 feet above the ground, find the t-values forwhich h 50.
