A polynomial is an expression consisting of variables and coefficients, that involves only the operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and non-negative integer exponents. The degree of the polynomial is the largest exponent on the variable. The leading coefficient in a polynomial is the highest degree term. The polynomial I created is x(1+3x^9), when zoomed out it looks like the function u(x) =5x^2 and when zoomed in it looks like the function q(x)=0.5x. Below the blue line represents u(x) =5x^2 and the red line is x(1+3x^9).

Below the blue line is x(1+3x^9) and the red line is q(x)=0.5x.

Any feedback on my polynomials?

I find your definition on polynomials to be very helpful… I did assignment C and had it had to deal with polynomials with negatives. Maybe if I tried some with multiplication or addition. I would have come with better results. Thanks for the lesson ✨

Why do you think the polynomial x(1+3x^9) looks like the function u(x) =5x^2 when zoomed in like the function q(x)=0.5x when zoomed out? Why not the other way around?
