Let consider a quadratic polynomial
Steps to factorize quadratic polynomial
i) Multiply the highest degree and lowest degree coefficient i.e. a and c
ii) Add or subtract two numbers to find the coefficient b such that multiplication of these two give the multiplication from step i)
iii) write in factorization form by taking common part out from the polynomial
Is the following function a polynomial function. If the function is a polynomial function, state its degree. If it is not, tell why not. Write the polynomial in standard form. Then identify the leading term and the constant term.
