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 that feed the country. These equations help them to determine how long they need to work on a certain project.

One application of polynomials is that for any smooth curve we can approximate this curve by a graph of a polynomial function with sufficient degree. If you have real life data up to certain time, you can sketch the graph of the data and you want to predict the behavior of the data in the future. One way to solve this is to approximate the curve that you obtained from your data by a graph of a polynomial function hoping that this polynomial function can also approximate the data in the future. Polynomial equations are also used in creating buildings, landscapes and even roller coasters.

Lastly, and most importantly, using polynomials to pass high school and college. In every math class, using polynomials to graph and to find the possible rational zeroes is a big part in getting an A in the class. If you don’t know how to to this stuff then you can’t keep doing harder and harder math, like going from pre calculus to calculus.

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....

Key Concepts
Constants : A symbol having a fixed numerical value is called a constant.
Example : 7, 3, -2, 3/7, etc. are all constants.
Variables : A symbol which may be assigned different numerical values is known as
variable.
Example :
C - circumference of circle
r - radius of circle
Where 2 &
are constants. while C and r are variable
Algebraic expressions : A combination of...

Financial Polynomials
Ashford University
Abstract
In this paper I will be demonstrating how to use financial polynomials 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 following words: FOIL, like terms,...

Ans: Let P(x) = x + 10x + 25x + 15x + K and g(x) = x + 7
Since P(x) exactly divisible by g(x)
∴
r (x) = 0
x 3 + 3 x 2 + 4 x − 13
now x + 7 x 4 + 10 x 3 + 25 x 2 + 15 x + K
x 4 + 7 x3
