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.

Abstract
In this paper I will be demonstrating how to use financialpolynomials with a few expressions from the textbook “Elementary and Intermediate Algebra”. I will not only show the problem, but also will also break the expression down showing all mathematical work, and provide reasoning of how anybody can apply this theory to everyday life. In the paper there will be the...

The Park and Planning Commission decided to consider three factors when attempting to improve the daily profits at their sports facility:
❖ The number of all-day admission tickets sold
❖ The cost of operating the facility
❖ The price of each all-day admission ticket
After carefully analyzing their operating costs, they found that it would be impossible to cut them further.

The graph of a polynomial function of degree 3
In mathematics, polynomials are the simplest class of mathematical expressions (apart from the numbers and expressions representing numbers). A polynomial is an expression constructed from variables (also called indeterminates) and constants (usually numbers, but not always), using only the operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and non-negative integer exponents...

FinancialPolynomialsPolynomials have been used for many centuries to aid individuals with budgeting or expense planning. The use of algebraic functions has been very important in our normal day to day operations especially when it comes to the business field. Therefore, in this paper I will reveal how polynomials can be very beneficial to everyday lives dealing with finance.
The first thing is to find the proper algebraic...
