Q:
# Which second degree polynomial function has a leading coefficient of β1 and root 4 with multiplicity 2?

Accepted Solution

A:

[tex]\bf \stackrel{\textit{root of 4}}{x=4\implies x-4=0}\qquad \stackrel{\stackrel{multiplicity}{of~two}}{(x-4)^2}\qquad \implies \stackrel{FOIL}{x^2-8x+16}
\\\\\\
\stackrel{\textit{multiplying by -1}}{-1x^2+8x-16}[/tex]
