1. A polynomial has a degree of 5 whose coeffiecients are real numbers
has the zeros $2,\;4i,$ and $4 + i$. . Identify the remaining zeros.

$A)\;-4i,\;4-i\qquad B)\;-2,\;-4i,\;4-i\qquad C)$ $4i,\;-4-i\qquad D)\;-4i,\;4+i$

Complex roots always appear in conjugate pairs.
. . If $4i$ is a root, then $-4i$ is a root.
. . If $4 + i$ is a root, then $4 - i$ is a root.
Answer choice $(A)$.

2. An enclosed gas exerts a pressure P on the walls of its container.
This pressure is directly proportional to the temperature T of the gas.
If the pressure is 4 pounds per square inch when the temperature is 480° K,
identify the appropriate direct variation equation.

$A)\; P = \frac{1}{120}T\qquad B)\;P= \frac{1}{16}T\qquad C)\;$ $P = 16T\qquad D)\; P= 120T$

"The pressure is directly proportional to the termperature": . $P \:= \:kT$

We are told that $P = 4$ when $T = 480$.

So we have: . $4 \:= \:k(480)\quad\Rightarrow\quad k = \frac{1}{120}$

Therefore, the equation is: . $P \:= \:\frac{1}{120}T$ . . . answer choice $(A)$
