# What is the maximum number of solutions a quartic function can have?

I assume you mean a polynomial of degree 4. In general, a polynomial of degree "n" can be separated into "n" linear factors. As a result, a polynomial of degree "n" has exactly "n" solutions - unless two or more of the factors are repeated; in which case the corresponding solution is said to be a multiple solution.

As an example:

(x - 2)(x - 5) = 0

has two solutions, namely 2 and 5; while

(x - 3)(x - 3)(x + 5) = 0

is of degree three, but has only two solutions, since the solution "3" is repeated.

An equation such as

x2 + 1 = 0

cannot be factored in the real numbers, so if you insist that the solutions be real, there are zero solutions. However, the polynomial can be factored in the complex numbers; in this case:

(x + i)(x - i) = 0,

resulting in the two complex solutions, -i and +i.

### What are some similarities and differences between quartic and cubic functions?

The similarities are that they are polynomial functions and therefore continuous and differentiable. A real cubic will has an odd number of roots (and so must have a solution), a quartic has an even number of roots and so may have no solutions.

### How do you determine the number of solutions of an equation?

the maximum number of solutions to an euation is equal to the highest power expressed in the equation. 2x^2=whatever will have 2 answers

### Why does the discriminant determine the number and type of the solutions for a quadratic equation?

A quadratic equation is wholly defined by its coefficients. The solutions or roots of the quadratic can, therefore, be determined by a function of these coefficients - and this function called the quadratic formula. Within this function, there is one part that specifically determines the number and types of solutions it is therefore called the discriminant: it discriminates between the different types of solutions.

### How do you find maximum number of solutions algebra?

### How do you recognize when an equation has no real solution or an infinite number of solutions?

It depends on the equation. Also, the domain must be such that is supports an infinite number of solutions. A quadratic equation, for example, has no real solution if its discriminant is negative. It cannot have an infinite number of solutions. Many trigonometric equations are periodic and consequently have an infinite number of solutions - provided the domain is also infinite. A function defined as follows: f(x) = 1 if x is real f(x) =… Read More

### What are the Applications in linear program?

Linear programming is basically used to maximize profits (or some other function), when you have certain restrictions (for example, a limited amount of several resources).

### If a system has an infinite number of solutions does it follow that any ordered pair is a solution?

No, this is not necessarily the case. A function can have an infinite range of solutions but not an infinite domain. This means that not every ordered pair would be a solution.

### How do you find minimum and maximum value of calculus?

In Calculus, to find the maximum and minimum value, you first take the derivative of the function then find the zeroes or the roots of it. Once you have the roots, you can just simply plug in the x value to the original function where y is the maximum or minimum value. To know if its a maximum or minimum value, simply do your number line to check. the x and y are now your… Read More

### How do primary school pupils use algebra?

They are introduced to algebra through number machines. These are simple input-output processes. The pupils are given the machine's function, for example, "double the number and add 7". They are then given different inputs and asked to find the outputs. The next stage is giving them the inputs and outputs and asking them to work out the function. Finally, there are simple simultaneous equations - with integer solutions. They are introduced to algebra through number… Read More

### Why does 14.8 have 2 solutions?

It does not have any solutions! 14.8 is a number, not an equation, inequality or question and so has no solutions.

### Write an algorithm to find the largest number in a group of three integer numbers?

The following algorithm works for any number of integers: Assume the first number is the maximum - maximum = (first number). Compare your assumed maximum with the second number. If the second number is larger than the assumed maximum, replace the old assumed maximum with the second number.

### Largest of three numbers without using ternary operators in java?

Initially assume the maximum is equal to the first number. Then compare the maximum to the second number; if the second number is larger than the temporary maximum, assign the second number to the maximum. Repeat for the third number.
