If you need a review on polynomials, feel free to go to Tutorial 6: Polynomials . The following is an example of a polynomial equation: Standard Form of a Polynomial Equation When a polynomial is set equal to 0 and is written in descending order by degrees of the terms, the equation is in standard form. The following is an example of a polynomial equation in standard form: A quadratic equation is a special type of polynomial equation, one where the polynomial is of degree 2. If you need a review on quadratic equations feel free to go to Tutorial 17: Quadratic Equations . Recall that a quadratic equation in standard form looks like this: . Solving Polynomial Equations by Factoring Note that the steps are essentially the same as when you solve a quadratic equation by factoring, which is shown in Tutorial 17: Quadratic Equations. Step 1: Simplify each side if needed. olve things like removing ( ), removing fractions, adding like terms, etc.
