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.

...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...

...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...

A. Exponents
The expression bn is called a power or an exponential expression.
This is read “b to the nth power”
The b is the base, and the small raised symbol n is called the exponent.
The exponent indicates the number of times the base occurs as a factor.
Examples—Express each of the following using exponents.
a. 5 x 5 x 5 x 5 x 5 x 5 x 5 =

Factoring Polynomials
When factoring polynomials, the first step is to find the greatest common factor. This is the largest number that divides each term of the polynomial. In the example 25x2 + 35x3 the greatest common factor would be 5. X would also be a common factor so be sure to include that. And because both polynomials include an exponent, you use the smallest power that appears in all terms. So in our example, the...
