Introduction to Polynomials in Applications

What you’ll learn to do: Solve word problems involving operations on polynomials.

In this section we will apply what we know about finding the perimeter, area, and volume of geometric shapes to writing polynomials.  We will look at the idea of profit and see how a polynomial can be used to describe profit generated by a business.

Specifically, in this section you’ll learn how to:

  • Write polynomials involving perimeter, area, and volume
  • Write polynomials involving cost, revenue, and profit
