**Polynomials in One Variable**

** **The general form of a polynomial in one variable is represented as p(x) = a_{n}x^{n} + a_{n-1}x^{n-1} + … a_{1}x^{1} + a_{0 }

Where:

- a
_{n}, a_{n-1}, …., a_{1}, a_{0}are real numbers, - The exponents of each terms are whole numbers and
- The highest exponent, n, is the degree of the polynomial, if a
_{n}

If p(x) is a polynomial and k is real number and if p(k) = 0, then k is called the zero of the polynomial.

Two methods to determine the zero of polynomial are:

- Trial and error
- Equating polynomial to zero
