Polynomial Inequality

As you drag the slider above, watch how the sign of each of the factors of changes. Each factor changes signs exactly once, as you pass its critical value. This is why the roots are called critical values, because they are the -values at which the sign of the corresponding factors changes. If you want to see what the numerical value of each factor is, then check the "Numbers" box.
