## What is a polynomial of degree 5?

quintic function

In other words, a quintic function is defined by a polynomial of degree five. Because they have an odd degree, normal quintic functions appear similar to normal cubic functions when graphed, except they may possess an additional local maximum and local minimum each.

Minus 1 right over here. And over here you have a 2x to the fifth.

### What is 4th degree polynomial?

In algebra, a quartic function is a function of the form. where a is nonzero, which is defined by a polynomial of degree four, called a quartic polynomial. A quartic equation, or equation of the fourth degree, is an equation that equates a quartic polynomial to zero, of the form.

**What is the 8th degree polynomial?**

For higher degrees, names have sometimes been proposed, but they are rarely used: Degree 8 – octic. Degree 9 – nonic. Degree 10 – decic.

#### What is an example of a quintic polynomial?

(An example of a quintic equation is 6×5 + 3×4 + 3×2 + 5x + 6 = 0.) The fundamental theorem of algebra would come to be important in finding solutions to quintic equations.

**What is quintic in math?**

Definition of quintic (Entry 2 of 2) : a polynomial or a polynomial equation of the fifth degree.

## Can you solve a quintic equation?

Unlike quadratic, cubic, and quartic polynomials, the general quintic cannot be solved algebraically in terms of a finite number of additions, subtractions, multiplications, divisions, and root extractions, as rigorously demonstrated by Abel (Abel’s impossibility theorem) and Galois.

**What is a 6th degree polynomial?**

In algebra, a sextic (or hexic) polynomial is a polynomial of degree six. A sextic equation is a polynomial equation of degree six—that is, an equation whose left hand side is a sextic polynomial and whose right hand side is zero.

### How many zeros does a 5th degree polynomial have?

You are correct that the only zero present is x=2 , however, that zero is repeated because it is the only one present for the 5th degree polynomial. Essentially, the polynomial has 5 zeroes, all of which are x=2 .

**Can a 6th degree polynomial have 1 zero?**

No, it could have a single root with a multiplicity of 2, but not 1. A polynomial of degree N is one where the highest exponent is N.
