16 problems that involve finding the zeros of a polynomial (and their multiplicities). Numbers 1-12 can be solved by factoring (factoring by grouping, pulling out common factors, difference of squares, and factoring trinomials). Numbers 13-16 ask the student to use a polynomial that fits a Camping store's profit as a function of month number. The student must determine what month the profit of a business was a particular amount. They can solve these with the help of a calculator.
