Polynomial 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 (which are abbreviations for several multiplications by the same...

“FOIL” consist of multiplying the two, two term polynomials together by the first terms, the outer terms, the inner terms, and finally the last two terms. Once you “FOIL” the two term polynomials together you should get: 16 – 8x + x2. Keep in mind you still have parts of the original equation that should be incorporated into the new equation. The new equation is = 2(16 – 8x + x2) – 5. Next you will want to distribute the two into the new three term polynomial, which gives you 32 – 16x + 2x2 – 5. Distributing...

Use of factor theorem can produce the factors of a expression in a trial and error manner. Remainder Theorem If a polynomial f(x) is divided by (x – r) until a remainder which is free of x is obtained, the remainder is f(r). If f(r) = 0 then (x – r) is a factor of f(x).

Subtract from to get Reorder the polynomial alphabetically from left to right, starting with the highest order term. −3x = 4y+5 Divide each term in the equation by −3. −3x−3=4y−3+5−3 Simplify the right-hand side of the equation. Move the minus sign from the denominator...
