Unit 2 Polynomials Exercise 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, 2.5 Solutions

In mathematics, a polynomial is an expression consisting of variables (or indeterminates) and coefficients, that involves only the operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and non-negative integer exponents. An example of a polynomial of a single indeterminate (or variable), x, is x2 - 4x + 7, which is a quadratic polynomial.

Polynomials appear in a wide variety of areas of mathematics and science. For example, they are used to form polynomial equations, which encode a wide range of problems, from elementary word problems to complicated problems in the sciences; they are used to define polynomial functions, which appear in settings ranging from basic chemistry and physics to economics and social science; they are used in calculus and numerical analysis to approximate other functions. In advanced mathematics, polynomials are used to construct polynomial rings and algebraic varieties, central concepts in algebra and algebraic geometry.

Exercise 2.1 : Solutions of Questions on Page Number : 32

Q1 :  

Which of the following expressions are polynomials in one variable and which are not? State reasons for your answer.

(i) (ii) (iii)

(iv) (v)


Answer :

(i)

Yes, this expression is a polynomial in one variable x.

(ii)

Yes, this expression is a polynomial in one variable y.

(iii)

No. It can be observed that the exponent of variable t in term is , which is not a whole number. Therefore, this expression is not a polynomial.

(iv)

No. It can be observed that the exponent of variable y in termis - 1, which is not a whole number. Therefore, this expression is not a polynomial.

(v)

No. It can be observed that this expression is a polynomial in 3 variables x, y, and t. Therefore, it is not a polynomial in one variable.
