Review of Exponent Laws
To multiply powers of the same base, you
add the exponents.
To divide powers of the same base, you
subtract the exponents
To raise a power to another exponent, you
multiply the exponents

Let g be the indicated transformation of
f(x) = 3x + 1. Write the rule for g.
1. horizontal translation 1 unit right
g(x) = 3x 2
2. vertical stretch by a factor of 2
g(x) = 6x + 2
3. horizontal com

1.1 Polynomial Functions
MHF4U
Remember integers are 2, -1, 0, 1, 2 (no decimals
or fractions) so positive integers would be 0, 1, 2
A polynomial function is a function of the form:
n must be a positive integer
f x an x an 1 x

Definition of a Polynomial Function
Let n be a nonnegative integer and let an, an1, a2, a1, a0, be real numbers with an
0. The function defined by
f (x) anxn an-1xn-1 a2x2 a1x a0
is called a polynomial function
