Applications of polynomials

Applications of polynomials

In this session, we will apply the knowledge of polynomials learned from previous sessions to solve questions related to geometric shapes. Therefore, before we start, it's a good idea to refresh your memory on polynomial operations we have talked about in the lessons before.
