### Algebra

10.1 Adding and Subtracting Polynomials

Intro
• Polynomial-the sum of terms in the form axk where k is a nonnegative integer.
• A polynomial is usually written in standard form meaning the terms are placed in descending order by degree(exponent).

-4x3 + 5x2 – 4x + 9

12x – 8x2 + 6

The degree of a polynomial is the largest exponent.

This is a polynomial of degree 3.

Writing a Polynomial in Standard Form
• Let’s try: 4x – 3x3 + 2x2 – 9

Standard form: -3x3 + 2x2 + 4x – 9

• You try: -9x + 3 + 4x2 – 10x4

Standard form: -10x4 + 4x2 – 9x + 3

Classify this polynomial by degree.

Subtracting Polynomials

Let’s try: (-6x3 + 5x – 3) – (2x3 + 4x2 – 3x + 1)

(-6x3 + 5x – 3) + (-2x3– 4x2+ 3x – 1)

-8x3

- 4x2

+ 8x

- 4

You try: (12x – 8x2 + 6) – (-8x2 – 3x + 4)

(12x – 8x2 + 6) + (8x2+ 3x – 4)
