evaluating polynomials in function notation

In mathematics, a polynomial is an expression consisting of variables and coefficients which only employs the operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and non-negative integer exponents

rational zero

In algebra, the rational root theorem states a constraint on rational solutions of a polynomial equation with integer coefficients

Got it

synthetic division

In algebra, synthetic division is a method of performing Euclidean division of polynomials, with less writing and fewer calculations than occur with polynomial long division

degree

A degree is a measurement of plane angle, defined by representing a full rotation as 360 degrees

evaluating polynomials in function notation

In mathematics, a polynomial is an expression consisting of variables and coefficients which only employs the operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and non-negative integer exponents

function notation

In mathematics, a function is a relation between a set of inputs and a set of permissible outputs with the property that each input is related to exactly one output

standard form

A standard form contract is a contract between two parties, where the terms and conditions of the contract are set by one of the parties, and the other party has little or no ability to negotiate more favorable terms and is thus placed in a "take it or leave it" position

remainder theorem

In algebra, the polynomial remainder theorem or little BÃ©zout's theorem is an application of Euclidean division of polynomials

complex solutions

A complex number is a number that can be expressed in the form a + bi, where a and b are real numbers and i is the imaginary unit which satisfies the equation i2 = -1

conjugate pair

In mathematics, the complex conjugate of a complex number is the number with equal real part and imaginary part equal in magnitude but opposite in sign

leading coefficient

In mathematics, a coefficient is a multiplicative factor in some term of a polynomial, a series or any expression; it is usually a number, but in any case does not involve any variable of the expression

power function

Exponentiation is a mathematical operation, written as bn, involving two numbers, the base b and the exponent n

transformations of polynomial graphs

In mathematics, a polynomial transformation consists of computing the polynomial whose roots are a given function of the roots of polynomial
