Re: polynomials

If a1 is a root, ontain an expression for a1^n using the equation.

Do this for them all and add them up.

Re: polynomials

Hi;


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.
