Every integer greater than 1 either is a prime number itself or can be represented as the product of prime numbers and that, moreover, this representation is unique, up to (except for) the order of the factors.
For example, \(20=2^2 \times 5 = 2\times2\times5\)

Nested Form of a Polynomial Expand Q to prove that the polynomials P and Q ae the same \(\displaystyle{P}{\left({x}\right)}={3}{x}^{{4}}-{5}{x}^{{3}}+{x}^{{2}}-{3}{x}+{5}{N}{S}{K}{Q}{\left({x}\right)}={\left({\left({\left({3}{x}-{5}\right)}{x}+{1}\right)}{x}-{3}\right)}{x}+{5}\) Try to evaluate P(2) and Q(2) in your head, using the forms given. Which is easier? Now write the polynomial \(\displaystyle{R}{\left({x}\right)}={x}^{{5}}—{2}{x}^{{4}}+{3}{x}^{{3}}—{2}{x}^{{3}}+{3}{x}+{4}\) in “nested” form, like the polynomial Q. Use the nested form to find R(3) in your head. Do you see how calculating with the nested form follows the same arithmetic steps as calculating the value ofa polynomial using synthetic division?

Prove the Arithmetic-Geometric Mean Inequality If \(\displaystyle{a}_{{1}}{a}_{{2}},\ldots,{a}_{{n}}\) are nonnegative numbers, then their arithmetic mean is \(\displaystyle{\frac{{{a}_{{1}}+{a}_{{2}}+\ldots+{a}_{{n}}}}{{{n}}}},\) and their geometric . The avthmetic-geometic mean is \(\displaystyle\sqrt{{{n}}}{\left\lbrace{a}_{{1}},{a}_{{2}},\ldots{a}_{{n}}\right\rbrace}.\) The arithmetic-geometric mean equality states that the geometric mean is always less than or equal to the arithmetic mean. In this problem we prove this in the case of two numbers andy. (a) If x and y are nonnegative and \(\displaystyle{x}\leq{y},{t}{h}{e}{n}{x}^{{2}}\leq{y}^{{2}}.\) [Hint: First use Rule 3 of Inequalities to show that \(\displaystyle{x}^{{2}}\leq{x}{y}{\quad\text{and}\quad}{x}{y}\leq{y}^{{2}}.\) ] (b) Prove the arithmetic-geometric mean inequality \(\displaystyle\sqrt{{{x}{y}}}\leq{\frac{{{x}+{y}}}{{{2}}}}\)
