This standard form calculator is basically a tool that finds multiple things about polynomials, the main of them being the Standard form of a polynomial equation.
After Hitting the calculate button, the user first sees the polynomial in standard form. Then there is
You can see the steps for each calculation.
To write polynomials in standard form using this calculator;
Each equation type has its standard form. Radical equation? Check. Rational equation? Check. This means there is also a standard form of polynomial or exponential equations.
The standard form of the polynomial equation is obtained by ordering elements in the descending order of degrees. Its general form is
Let’s see some examples of these equations.
Order the following equation in standard form.
7x - 3 + 5x2
Step 1: See the order of the polynomial.
The highest degree tells the order of the polynomial equation. In this example, the order of the polynomial is 2.
Step 2: Write the element with degree 2 in the first place.
5x2 is the required element.
5x2 + (second value) + (third value)
Step 3: Place the degree 1 value.
7x has the power one.
5x2 + 7x + (third value)
Step 4: Input the last value with the variable degree 0.
5x2 + 7x - 3.
This is the standard form of the given equation.
Arrange the following equations in the standard form
Factorization, as you might know, is the process of breaking down a value into smaller values which on multiplication give the original equation or function. Quadratic equations can be broken down by quadratic formula and completing squares.
But a general method is to arrange the equation into standard form and simplify it. It is best explainable by an example.
Consider that you have the equation 9x + 6x2y + 3xy. Let’s find its factors.
Firstly, arrange this equation into standard form.
= 6x2y + 3xy + 9x
See what you can extract from this equation. This value will be the GCF of all three entries of the equation.
= 3x (2xy + y + 3)
So, 3x is the GCF of the equation 6x2y + 3xy + 9x. Now, this equation is at its simplest. It cannot be solved further.
Hence, the factors of this equation are 3x and 2xy + y + 3.
When a polynomial equation is plotted on a graph, the x-intercepts give the factors of the equation. For example
This is the graph of the polynomial equation x2 + 2x + 1. You can determine its factors by looking at the x-intercept.
The factors of this equations are x = -1 and x = -1.
The calculator above finds the factors of the equation in the Galois field 2. GF(2) is the smallest finite field that exists with the elements 0 and 1.
Its resemblance to the binary system and boolean algebra makes it really useful in computer science and related fields.
