Hi MathsisFun;

So far, so good. The Descartes rule of signs is neat. Can ya give the inventor a mention? He was such a genius.

No one seems to use this in practice anymore. That's a shame, because it is so powerful and so simple.

Well done!

**In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?Combinatorics is Algebra and Algebra is Combinatorics.**
