What Is the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra
Question: What is the fundamental theorem of algebra?
Answer: The fundamental theorem of algebra states that a polynomial p(x) of degree n can have a maximum of n zeros.
The degree of a polynomial is the highest exponential power in the polynomial equation.
The fundamental theorem of algebra states that a polynomial of degree 'n' can have at most n roots.
In general, a polynomial in one variable and of degree 'n' will have the following form:
p(x): anxn + an-1xn-1 + ... + a1x + a0 , an ≠ 0 can have at the maximum n zeros.
