Bsic Definitions An lgebric epression contining only terms of the form k, where is ny rel number nd k is nonnegtive integer, is clled polynomil in one vrible or simply polynomil. Here re some emples of polynomils in one vrible. 3 8, , In the term k, is clled the coefficient, nd k the degree, of the term. Note tht the degree of the term is 1, nd the degree of constnt term is 0. Becuse polynomil is n lgebric sum, the coefficients tke on the signs between the terms. For instnce, hs coefficients 1, 4, 0, nd 3. Polynomils re usully written in order of descending powers of the vrible. This is referred to s stndrd form. For emple, the stndrd form of is Stndrd form The degree of polynomil is defined s the degree of the term with the highest power, nd the coefficient of this term is clled the leding coefficient of the polynomil. For instnce, the polynomil , is of fourth degree nd its leding coefficient is 3. nd 9 5 Definition of Polynomil in Let 0, 1, 2, 3,..., n be rel numbers nd let n be nonnegtive integer. A polynomil in is n epression of the form n n n1 n where n 0. The polynomil is of degree n, nd the number n is clled the leding coefficient. The number is clled the constnt term. 0 The following re not polynomils, for the resons stted. The epression is not polynomil becuse the eponent in The epression is not polynomil becuse the eponent in integer. is negtive is not nonnegtive

8 Applictions Section P.4 Opertions with Polynomils 45 There re mny pplictions tht require the evlution of polynomils. One commonly used second-degree polynomil is clled position polynomil. This polynomil hs the form 16t 2 v 0 t s 0 Position polynomil where t is the time, mesured in seconds. The vlue of this polynomil gives the height (in feet) of free-flling object bove the ground, ssuming no ir resistnce. The coefficient of t, v 0, is clled the initil velocity of the object, nd the constnt term, s 0, is clled the initil height of the object. If the initil velocity is positive, the object ws projected upwrd (t t 0), if the initil velocity is negtive, the object ws projected downwrd, nd if the initil velocity is zero, the object ws dropped. t = 0 t = ft t = 2 t = 3 Figure P.13 Emple 15 Finding the Height of Free-Flling Object An object is thrown downwrd from the top of 200-foot building. The initil velocity is 10 feet per second. Use the position polynomil 16t 2 10t 200 to find the height of the object when t 1, t 2, nd t 3 (see Figure P.13). When t 1, the height of the object is Height feet. When t 2, the height of the object is Height feet. When t 3, the height of the object is Height feet. Now try Eercise 167. In Emple 15, the initil velocity is 10 feet per second. The vlue is negtive becuse the object ws thrown downwrd. If it hd been thrown upwrd, the initil velocity would hve been positive. If it hd been dropped, the initil velocity would hve been zero. Use your clcultor to determine the height of the object in Emple 15 when t Wht cn you conclude?
