Polynomial Functions

 Topic Review on "Title": Monomial (in one variable X): A function of the form:,. Polynomial: Any finite sum of monomials of the form: Coefficients: The (real or complex) numbers of the form: Constant term: The zero coefficient is . The product of polynomials: The product is defined according to the rules: 1) 2) . Degree: The degree n is such that: Dividing polynomials: We say that divides if there is a polynomial such that . Roots: Real or complex numbers where polynomials equal to 0. Factorization of roots: If a polynomial of degree n has roots:  then it can be factored as: . Fundamental theorem of algebra: A polynomial of degree n has exactly n complex roots. Rolle’s Theorem: Let f(X) be a polynomial and a, b are two numbers such that and  then there is a number c such that :
