A general Polynomial function of degree 4 is given below.

We explore all the possible polynomial functions up to the 4th degree using the tool given below the equation. Here in this tool, we plot the graph of a polynomial by selecting the coefficients.

A polynomial of degree 1 is called a linear polynomial and to get we select a=b=c=0 and vary “d” and “e” and the respective plot is drawn in the graphing area of the tool. from the graph, we can observe the variation of the x-intercept with “d” and “e” variation.

This way one can easily understand the geometrical meaning of different polynomials and find their solutions

 

ax^4+bx^3+cx^2+dx+e
