- 2. Polynomial factoring A, b, c, d, e….. Are real numbers and “N” is as a positive integer. You have to combine the like terms. Factoring; the opposite of multiplication. Look for common factors. Trinomials and binomials are the most common polynomials meaning they have three terms.
- 3. Polynomial functi0ns You can either write it as a polynomial or not a polynomial. Polynomials ex: F(x)=1/2X^2+2x-3 F(x)=6x^4-3x^2+2x-5 F(x)=x^12 Not polynomials ex: F(x)= x^-2+5 F(x)=2X^1/2+3x^2-4
- 4. The a; If you raise the “a” it goes down, right and as you lower the number or “a” it goes up, left. If it’s a polynomial and is shaped like an u as you increase the number its gets wider as it goes to the right and as the number gets smaller it moves to the left and gets wider.
- 5. Words to know Degree: highest power of x in the standard form Leading coefficient: the coefficient of first term, if they are in descending order. Factored form: f(x)= (x-r1)(x-r2)(x-r3)… Standard form: Everything is multiplied together.
