Apolynomial functionis a function of the form:
( )
onnnn
a xa xa xa x f  
++++=
111
All of these coefficients are real numbers
n
must be a nonnegative integer Remember integers are … –2, -1, 0, 1, 2 … (no decimalsor fractions) so nonnegative integers would be 0, 1, 2 …
Thedegreeof the polynomial is the largestpower on any
 x 
term in the polynomial.
 
 
 x

Not a polynomial because of thesquare root since the power is NOTan integer

Determine which of the following are polynomialfunctions. If the function is a polynomial, state itsdegree.A polynomial of degree 4.

A polynomial of degree 0.
We can write in an
