Discussion Forum Unit 3 Polynomial and rational functions can be used to model a wide variety of phenomena of science, technology, and everyday life. Choose one of these sectors and give an example of a polynomial or rational function modeling a situation in that sector. [Hint: see the examples and exercises in the book.] Go to , write your equation, or function, and develop your explanation using the properties of graphs. Your Discussion should be a minimum of 250 words in length and not more than 750 words. The example below expresses how a polynomial function can be used in everyday life. A bakery produces cubic cakes (parallelepiped shaped) and they set some rules for the size of the cakes they produce. The customer may choose only the width of the cake, the other measurements are set by the bakery. The length of the cake must be 4 inches longer than the width and the height must be one third of the width. After receiving the width from the customer, the bakery needs to calculate its volume
