## Text Solution

Steps:

(i) $${p(y)}={y^{2}-y+1}$$

\begin{align}{p(0)}&={(0)^{2}-(0)+1=1} \\ {p(1)}&={(1)^{2}-(1)+1=1} \\ {p(2)}&={(2)^{2}-2+1=3}\end{align}

(ii) $$p(t) =2+t+2\left(t^{2}\right)-t^{3}$$

\begin{align}p(0) &=2+0+2(0)^{2}-(0)^{3} \\ &=2+0+0-0=2 \\ p(1) &=2+1+2(1)^{2}-(1)^{3} \\ &=2+1+2-1=4 \\ p(2) &=2+2+2(2)^{2}-(2)^{3} \\ &=2+2+8-8=4 \end{align}

(iii)$$p(x) =x^{3}$$

\begin{align}p(0) &=(0)^{3}=0 \\ p(1) &=(1)^{3}=1 \\ p(2) &=(2)^{3}=8 \end{align}

(iv) $$p(x) =(x-1)(x+1)$$

\begin{align} p(x) &=x^{2}-1 \\ p(0) &=(0)^{2}-1=-1 \\ p(1) &=(1)^{2}-1=0 \\ p(2) &=(2)^{2}-1=3 \end{align}
