Section R3: Polynomials
223 Reference Chapter Section R3: Polynomials Simplify the Following: 1. 2. 3. 4.

Section R3: Polynomials
223 Reference Chapter Section R3: Polynomials Simplify the Following: 1. x^9y^5 2. r^27 3. a^6b^12c^24 4. (k^6m^15)/(n^9p^12)

Section R3: Polynomials
223 Reference Chapter Section R3: Polynomials Polynomial: a finite sum of terms with only positive or zero integer coefficients permitted for the variables. The Degree of the polynomial is the highest coefficient. Monomial: 1 term Binomial: 2 terms Trinomial: 3 terms Example: Here is a polynomial The degree is 9, and it is a trinomial

Section R3: Polynomials
223 Reference Chapter Section R3: Polynomials Adding and Subtracting Polynomials is done by combining like terms. Example: Simplify each expression 1. 2. 3. 4.

223 Reference Chapter Section R3: Polynomials Adding and Subtracting Polynomials is done by combining like terms. Example: Simplify each expression 1. 7y^3 + 5y – 4 2. 4a^5 + 6a^4 – 4a^3 + 9a^2 3. 3b^3 – b^4 + 9 4. 8x^5 – 16x^4 + 24x^2 – 4x^5 – 2x^4 + 16x^2 = 4x^5 – 18x^4 + 40x^2

Section R3: Polynomials
223 Reference Chapter Section R3: Polynomials Multiplying Polynomials-multiply each term of the first polynomial by each term of the second polynomial, then combine like terms. Example: Simplify each expression 1. 2. 3. 4.

223 Reference Chapter Section R3: Polynomials Multiplying Polynomials-multiply each term of the first polynomial by each term of the second polynomial, then combine like terms. Example: Simplify each expression 1. 2y^2 + 2y - 12 2. 4x^2 – 25 3. a^4 – 5a^3 + 11a^2 – 10a 4. 16w^6 + 48w^3 + 36

Section R3: Polynomials
223 Reference Chapter Section R3: Polynomials Dividing Polynomials: the quotient can be found using an algorithm similar to the long division model used for whole numbers. Both polynomials must be written in descending order. Example: What is the quotient of /65? Use the process of long division.
