Unformatted text preview: Section 1.6 Other Types of Equations Polynomial Equations A polynomial equation is the result of setting two polynomials equal to each other. The equation is in general form if one side is 0 and the polynomial on the other side is in descending powers of the variable. The degree of a polynomial equation is the same as the highest degree of any term in the equation. Here are examples of some polynomial equations. Example Solve by Factoring: 4 8 6 2 4 x x = Example Solve by Factoring: 4 2 1 3 3 6 x x = - Graphing Equations You can find the solutions on the graphing calculator for the previous problem by moving all terms to one side, and graphing the equation. The zeros of the function are the solutions to the problem. X 4-13X 2 +36=0 Radical Equations A radical equation is an equation in which the variable occurs in a square root, cube root, or any higher root. We solve the equation by squaring both sides.We solve the equation by squaring both sides....
