Use the Intermediate Value Theorem to determine if P(x)=2x^5-7x+1 has a zero in the interval [1,2].Answer by stanbon(57307)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Use the Intermediate Value Theorem to determine if P(x)=2x^5-7x+1 has a zero in the interval [1,2]. ------- Check P(1) and P(2). If the signs are different there is a zero for P(x) in that interval. ------------ You could also check by graphing P(x) ==================== Cheers, Stan H.
