An Introduction to Polynomials

terminology
Terminology
  • A monomial is numeral, a variable, or the product of a numeral and one or more values.
  • Monomials with no variables are called constants.
  • A coefficient is the numerical factor in a monomial.
  • The degree of a monomial is the sum of the exponents of its variables.

Terminology
  • A polynomial is a monomial or a sum of terms that are monomials.
  • Polynomials can be classified by the number of terms they contain.
  • A polynomial with two terms is binomial. A polynomial with three terms is a trinomial.
  • The degree of a polynomial is the same as that of its term with the greatest degree.

Polynomial Functions and Their Graphs

graphs of polynomial functions
Graphs of Polynomial Functions
  • When a function rises and then falls over an interval from left to right, the function has a local maximum.
  • f(a) is a local maximum (plural, local maxima) if there is an interval around a such that f(a) > f(x) for all values of x in the interval, where x ≠ a.
  • If the function falls and then rises over an interval from left to right, it has a local minimum.
  • f(a) is a local minimum (plural, local minima) if there is an interval around a such that f(a) < f(x) for all values of x in the interval, where x ≠ a.
graphs of polynomial functions1
Graphs of Polynomial Functions
  • The points on the graph of a polynomial function that correspond to local maxima and local minima are called turning points.
  • Functions change from increasing to decreasing or from decreasing to increasing at turning points.
  • A cubic function has at most 2 turning points, and a quartic function has at most 3 turning points. In general, a polynomial function of degree n has at most n – 1 turning points.
increasing and decreasing functions
Increasing and Decreasing Functions
  • Let x₁ and x₂ be numbers in the domain of a function, f.
  • The function f is increasing over an open interval if for every x₁ < x₂ in the interval, f(x₁) < f(x₂).
  • The function f is decreasing over an open interval if for every x₁ < x₂ in the interval, f(x₁) > f(x₂).
continuity of a polynomial function
Continuity of a Polynomial Function
  • Every polynomial function y = P(x) is continuous for all values of x.
  • Polynomial functions are one type of continuous functions.
  • The graph of a continuous function is unbroken.
  • The graph of a discontinuous function has breaks or holes in it.
if a polynomial function is written in standard form
If a polynomial function is written in standard form
  • f(x) = a xⁿ + a xⁿ⁻¹ + · · · + a₁x + a₀,

ⁿ ⁿ⁻¹

The leading coefficient is a .

The leading coefficient is the coefficient of the term of greatest degree in the polynomial.

factor theorem and remainder theorem
Factor Theorem and Remainder Theorem
  • Factor Theorem
  • x – r is a factor of the polynomial expression that defines the function P if and only if r is a solution of P(x) = 0, that is, if and only if P(r) = 0
  • Remainder Theorem
  • If the polynomial expression that defines the function of P is divided by x – a, then the remainder is the number P(a).
dividing polynomials
Dividing Polynomials
  • A polynomial can be divided by a divisor of the form x – r by using long division or a shortened form of long division called synthetic division.
  • Long division of polynomials is similar to long division of real numbers.
