Polynomials Polynomials Presentation Transcript

  • POLYNOMIALS
  • Polynomial An expression of finite length Finite= has limit; definite; countable; measurable made up of terms that are only added, subtracted or multiplied comes form poly- (meaning "many") and -nomial (in this case meaning "term") ... so it says "many terms"
  • Composition of Polynomials Constants Variables Variables with positive exponents can have no variable at all Can have one variable
  • Whats special about polynomials? If you add polynomials you get a polynomial If you multiply polynomials you get a polynomial
  • Standard form Those variables with highest exponents go first Descending order of exponents 4 2 x −2x + x
  • Example Graph of a Polynomial Example: x 4−2x 2+ x
  • Examples: Polynomials?x√ 4 34x+2x2x3x 3 +0.00015y− s3 x2
  • POLYNOMIALS? 21. √ x 2. 23x [ x−1] 2 −13. 23x 4. y √x 2 5. −1 ( ) 2 z
  • Monomials, Binomials, Trinomials Basically, these are polynomials Monomials are one-term polynomials 2 3ex. 3x, 3x y Binomials are... guess what...two-term polynomials 4 4ex. 10x-3 , 4x −5y Trinomials?Polynomials with three terms 2ex. 2x +3y+1
  • DISCIPLES OF CONFUSIONISM?
  •  QUESTIONS CLARIFICATIONS? VIOLENTREACTIONS?
