EXAMPLE Solution We substitute  3 for x and 4 for y: 5 + 4x + xy 2 + 9x 3 y 2 = 5 + 4(  3) + (  3)(4 2 ) + 9(  3) 3 (4) 2 = 5  12  48  3888 =  3943 4.7 Operations with Polynomials in Several Variables a Evaluate a polynomial in several variables for given values of the variables. AEvaluate the polynomial 5 + 4x + xy 2 + 9x 3 y 2 for x =  3 and y = 4. Slide 4Copyright 2011, 2007, 2003, 1999 Pearson Education, Inc.

EXAMPLE The surface area of a right circular cylinder is given by the polynomial 2  rh + 2  r 2 where h is the height and r is the radius of the base. A barn silo has a height of 50 feet and a radius of 9 feet. Approximate its surface area. Solution We evaluate the polynomial for h = 50 ft and r = 9 ft. If 3.14 is used to approximate , we have h r 4.7 Operations with Polynomials in Several Variables a Evaluate a polynomial in several variables for given values of the variables.

AApplications of Polynomials Slide 6Copyright 2011, 2007, 2003, 1999 Pearson Education, Inc. 2  rh + 2  r 2  2(3.14)(9 ft)(50 ft) + 2(3.14)(9 ft) 2  2(3.14)(9 ft)(50 ft) + 2(3.14)(81 ft 2 )  2826 ft 2 + 508.68 ft 2  3334.68 ft 2 Note that the unit in the answer (square feet) is a unit of area. The surface area is about 3334.7 ft 2 (square feet).

Recall that the degree of a monomial is the number of variable factors in the term. 4.7 Operations with Polynomials in Several Variables b Identify the coefficients and the degrees of the terms of a polynomial and the degree of a polynomial.
