# Creating Polynomial Functions In Exercises 103-106.find a polynomial function f ( x ) = a n x n + a n − 1 x n − 1 + ⋯ + a 2 x 2 + a 1 x + a 0 that has only the specified extrema, (a) Determine the minimum degree of the function and give the criteria you used in detennining the degree, (b) Using the fact that the coordinates of the extrema are solution points of the function, and that the .x-coordinates are critical numbers, determine a system of linear equations whose solution yields the coefficients of the required function, (c) Use a graphing utility to solve the system of equations and determine the function, (d) Use a graphing utility' to confirm your result graphically.Relative minimum: (0.0); Relative maximum: (2. 2)

(a)

To determine
The minimum degree of a polynomial that would satisfy the provided conditions such that function has a relative maximum at (2,2) and a relative minimum at (0,0).

Explanation

Given:

The function has a relative maximum at (2,2) and a relative minimum at (0,0).

Explanation:

It has been provided that the polynomial has two relative extremas at points 0 and 2

(b)

To determine
A system of equations that can be used to identify the polynomial such that the function has a relative maximum at (2,2) and a relative minimum at (0,0).

(c)

To determine

To calculate: The polynomial by solving of the provided system of equations in part b) using a graphing utility.

(d)

To determine

To graph: The polynomial obtained in part c) and to verify the relative extremas.
