False 10. False 11. f ( x ) = 4 x + x 3 is a polynomial function of degree 3. 12. f ( x ) = 5 x 2 + 4 x 4 is a polynomial function of degree 4. 13. g ( x ) = 1 - x 2 2 = 1 2 - 1 2 x 2 is a polynomial function of degree 2. 14. h ( x ) = 3 - 1 2 x is a polynomial function of degree 1. 15. f ( x ) = 1 - 1 x = 1 - x - 1 is not a polynomial function because it contains a negative exponent. 16. f ( x ) = x ( x - 1) = x 2 - x is a polynomial function of degree 2. 17. g ( x ) = x 3/2 - x 2 + 2 is not a polynomial function because it contains a fractional exponent. 18. h ( x ) = x x - 1 ( 29 = x - x is not a polynomial function because it contains a square root. 19. F ( x ) = 5 x 4 x 3 + 1 2 is a polynomial function of degree 4. 20. F ( x ) = x 2 - 5 x 3 = 1 x - 5 x 3 is not a polynomial function because it contains a variable with a positive exponent in the denominator.
