But, when I take g(x) = x^2 + 1 – f(x), I get -719 as the answer. So, is f(x) not really a function? How do i justify this? Reply

That does not satisfy the original condition that f(x) has to be of order 5 I guess? So should not be a valid solution. Unless I am misunderstanding what you have done… regards J Reply

Just trying to make the value of the new function 0 at the given point (so that they will be roots) regards J Reply
