Polynomial Equation Solver
Top
A polynomial is something which is expressed in the form of a(xn) where n is non-negative integer.The variable 'a' is called as coefficient of xn and n is the degree of the monomial.

The general representation of polynomial is given by
F(x) = anxn + an-1xn-1 + an-2xn-2 + ........ + a1x +a0

Polynomial Equation Solver solves the polynomial equation. The polynomials will be of the form: A(x) = B(x)
where A(x) and B(x) are the polynomials.

You can see a default equation given below. The calculator first factorize the equation with least common denominator to reduce the equation. Then, by solving the given equation, the calculator will find the value of the variable when you click on "Solve Equation".

  1. Solve:

    $\frac{4x^{2} + 1}{3}$ = $\frac{3x^{2} + 5}{5}$


    Step 1 :  

    Multiply the whole polynomial equation by 15, we get


    15 $\times$ $\frac{4x^{2} + 1}{3}$ = 15 $\times$ $\frac{3x^{2} + 5}{5}$


    or


    5 (4x2 + 1) = 3 (3x2 + 5)



    Step 2 :  

    20 x2 + 5 = 9x2 + 15



    Step 3 :  

    11 x2 - 10 = 0


    or


    x2 = $\frac{10}{11}$



    Step 4 :  

    Solving the equation, we get


    x = $\pm$ $\sqrt \frac{10}{11}$



    Answer  :  

    There are two values:

     

     

     

    x1 = +$\sqrt \frac{10}{11}$ and

     

     

     

    x2 = $\sqrt \frac{10}{11}$.



  2. Solve: 2x2 - 3 = x


    Step 1 :  

    Since the polynomial equation is not in fraction the equation remains as it is.



    Step 2 :  

    The given equation is also in simplified form so the equation remains the same.



    Step 3 :  

    2x2- 3 - x = 0



    Step 4 :  

    solving the quadratic equation we get


    2x2 - 3x + 2x -3 = 0


    x(2x - 3)+ 1(2x - 3) = 0


    (x + 1)(2x - 3) = 0



    Answer  :  

    There are again two values for x :

    x1 = -1 and

    x2 = $\frac{3}{2}$.
