5 1 polynomials and polynomial functions

5.1 Polynomials and Polynomial Functions


5 1 polynomials and polynomial functions

  • A polynomial in one variable (say, x) is the sum of one or more terms of the form axn where a is a real number and n is a whole number.

  • A polynomial in several variables (say x, y, z) is the sum of one or more terms of the form axmynzp, where a is a real number and m, n, p are whole numbers.


Degree of a monomial what do you think it is

Degree of a Monomial…what do you think it is?

  • If a 0, the degree of axnis n.

  • The degree of a monomial containing several variables is the sum of the exponents on those variables.


Degree of a polynomial

Degree of a Polynomial

  • The degree of a polynomial is:

  • the degree of the monomial in it w/ the largest degree


5 1 polynomials and polynomial functions

  • A polynomial function is defined as

    • y = f (x) = P (x)

  • Evaluating a polynomial function
