# Polynomial Inequalities

When does revenue exceed cost? When will one race car pass another? Model these values with polynomials and use polynomial inequalities to solve questions like these and more.

# Polynomial Inequalities: Level 3 Challenges

$\big(n^2-2\big)\big(n^2-20\big)<0$

How many integers $$n$$ satisfy the inequality above?

Over the ranges

$\begin{eqnarray} -1 \leq & v & \leq 1 \\ -2 \leq & u & \leq -0.5 \\ -2 \leq & z & \leq -0.5 \\ \end{eqnarray}$

what is the range of $$w = \frac {vz}{u}$$?

If $$x$$ is an integer that satisfies the inequality

$9 < x ^2 < 99,$

find the difference between the maximum and minimum possible values of $$x.$$

As $$x$$ and $$y$$ ranges over all real values, what is the minimum value of

$(15x + 30y + 20)^2 + (20x + 40y + 15)^2?$

Given $$y=\frac{2x}{1+x^{2}}$$, where $$x$$ and $$y$$ are real numbers, what is the range of $$y^{2}+y-2$$?
