Match each polynomial function with its leading coefficient.

Column A

1.

P(x) = (x + 2) (2x – 3) (4x +7):

P(x) = (x + 2) (2x – 3) (4x +7)

2.

P(x) = 1/2(x – 2) (2x – 3) (4x + 7):

P(x) = 1/2(x – 2) (2x – 3) (4x + 7)

3.

P(x)= 5(x – 2) (2x – 3) (4x + 7):

P(x)= 5(x – 2) (2x – 3) (4x + 7)

4.

P(x) = -(x – 2) (2x – 3) (4x + 7):

P(x) = -(x – 2) (2x – 3) (4x + 7)

5.

P(x) = 1/4(X + 2) (2x – 3) (4x + 7):

P(x) = 1/4(X + 2) (2x – 3) (4x + 7)

Column B

a.2

b.8

c.-8

d.4
