Compounded semiannually. P dollars is invested at annual interest rate r for 1 year. If the interest is compounded semiannually, then the polynomial P(1+r/2)2 represents the value of the investment after 1 year. Rewrite this expression without parentheses.

|P(1+r/2)2 |Squaring the expression- this is the same as multiplying the expression by itself 2 times.| | | | | |Simplify the expression using the FOIL method | |P(1+r/2)(1+r/2) | | | |Combined like terms r + r = 2r or r | |P(r2/4+r/2+r/2+1) |2 2 2 | | |Distribute P across the trinomial | |P(r2/4+r+1) | | | |Place all variables in descending order | |Pr2/4+Pr+P | |

Now we are to try out our polynomial formula with the given sets of numerical information.

...Using Polynomials in the “Real World”
Polynomial functions are used in our everyday lives in a few different ways, this includes art, architecture, construction, financial planning, and manufacturing. We can also calculate how long it will take one person to do a job alone when we know how long it takes a group to get it done as well. Farmers on crop farms work dawn to dusk through the growing season to produce the grains, fruits, and vegetables...

...FINDING POLYNOMIALS
In order to evaluate the polynomials, I will first need to write the polynomial expressions without any parenthesis. Therefore, according to the example, I will need to FOIL the binomial (1+r)2 and then multiply all terms by P. I will begin by rewriting the polynomial expression without any parenthesis in ascending order of the variable r, as opposed to descending order, with the exponent in the last term instead of...

FINANCIALPOLYNOMIALS
The assignment that I will be discussing is financialpolynomials. The use of financialpolynomials is used in the real world all the time. Financialpolynomials are really important...

...This week’s assignment focused on polynomials, binomials, and monomials. We were provided with the polynomial expression to solve. Our textbook, Elementary, and Intermediate Algebra (2012), I need to solve for problem 70 on page 304. The textbook explained that P dollars is invested at annual interest rate r for 1 year. If the interest is compounded semiannually, then the polynomialP(1+r/2)^2 represents the value of the investment after 1 year. Our assignment is to...

...POLYNOMIALS IN DAILY LIFE
Polynomials are a combination of several terms that can be added, subtracted or multiplied but not divided. While polynomials are in sophisticated applications, they also have many uses in everyday life.
Although many of us don't realize it, people in all sorts of professions use polynomials every day. The most obvious of these are mathematicians, but they can also be used in fields ranging from...
