Question: Calculus assignment

I am doing a Calculus assignment and I can't find the commands for certain things.

1.Given the function f(x) = ((x+1)^2) / (1+x^2)

i) The domain of continuity of f(x)

ii) The intervals of increase and decrease of f(x) by using test points.


2. Use the IVT to prove existence of a root to the equation x^3 +10x^2 -100x +50=0 in the interval [-20,10]. Use again the IVT to show that there is a 1st root in [-17,-15], a 2nd toot in [0,1] and a 3rd root in [ 5,6]. Find or approximate those roots with Maple. (the bolded is what I need help).
