The most common type of lgeric epression is the polynomil. Some emples re 2 5, , nd 5 2y 2 y 3. The first two re polynomils in nd the third is polynomil in nd y. The terms of polynomil in hve the form k, where is the coefficient nd k is the degree of the term. For instnce, the polynomil 共 5兲 2 共0兲 Let 0,, 2,..., n e rel numers nd let n e nonnegtive integer. A polynomil in is n epression of the form P.3 n n Write polynomils in stndrd form. Add, sutrct, nd multiply polynomils. Use specil products to multiply polynomils. Remove common fctors from polynomils. Fctor specil polynomil forms. Fctor trinomils s the product of two inomils. Fctor y grouping. Why you should lern it Definition of Polynomil in n hs coefficients 2, 5, 0, nd. n Polynomils cn e used to model nd solve rel-life prolems. For instnce, in Eercise 57 on pge 34, polynomil is used to model the totl distnce n utomoile trvels when stopping where n 0. The polynomil is of degree n, n is the leding coefficient, nd 0 is the constnt term. In stndrd form, polynomil in is written with descending powers of. Polynomils with one, two, nd three terms re clled monomils, inomils, nd trinomils, respectively. A polynomil tht hs ll zero coefficients is clled the zero polynomil, denoted y 0. No degree is ssigned to this prticulr polynomil. For polynomils in more thn one vrile, the degree of term is the sum of the eponents of the vriles in the term. The degree of the polynomil is the highest degree of its terms. For instnce, the degree of the polynomil 23y6 4y 7y4 is ecuse the sum of the eponents in the lst term is the gretest. Epressions such s the following re not polynomils. 3 冪3 3 共3兲兾 Roert W. Ginn/ge fotostock The eponent 兾2 is not n integer. The eponent is not nonnegtive integer.

It is n importnt tool for solving equtions nd for simplifying rtionl epressions. Unless noted otherwise, when you re sked to fctor polynomil, you cn ssume tht you re looking for fctors with integer coefficients. If polynomil cnnot e fctored using integer coefficients, it is prime or irreducile over the integers. For instnce, the polynomil 2 3 is irreducile over the integers. Over the rel numers, this polynomil cn e fctored s A polynomil is completely fctored when ech of its fctors is prime. So, is completely fctored, ut is not completely fctored. Its complete fctoriztion is Completely fctored Not completely fctored The simplest type of fctoring involves polynomil tht cn e written s the product of monomil nd nother polynomil. The technique used here is the Distriutive Property, c c, in the reverse direction. For instnce, the polynomil cn e fctored s follows is common fctor. The first step in completely fctoring polynomil is to remove (fctor out) ny common fctors, s shown in the net emple. Activities.
