Page 282 - VARIATIONS of sign, nor the number of negative roots greater than the number of PERMANENCES. 325. Consequence. When the roots of an equation are all real, the number of positive roots is equal to the number of variations, and the number of negative roots is equal to the number of permanences. For, let m denote the degree of the equation, n the number of variations of the signs, p the number of permanences ; we shall have m=n+p. Moreover, let n' denote the number of positive roots, and p...
