Homework Help: Polynomial Inequality

  1. Oct 8, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    solve 3x4+2x2-4x+6≥6x4-5x3-9x+2

    Do not use technology (i.e.-graphing calculators)

    2. Relevant equations
    Remainder Theorem

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I set the inequality equal to zero

    Checking all the Possible rational roots for a possible factors... none worked... therefore roots not nice numbers. I was hoping to get this factored down and do an interval test and go about it from there but that won't work. Is there a different way to approach this question?

    Looks like it should be 2x^2 not 3x^2

    If you look at -3x^4+2x^2+4>-5x^3-5x

    It seems it is only one single interval ?
