    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    B. Science
    Explanation
    Polynomials appear in a wide variety of areas in science. They are used to model and solve problems in physics, chemistry, biology, and engineering. In physics, polynomials are used to describe the motion of objects, the behavior of waves, and the forces acting on particles. In chemistry, they are used to calculate reaction rates and equilibrium constants. In biology, polynomials are used to model population growth and enzyme kinetics. In engineering, they are used in electrical circuit analysis, control systems, and signal processing. Therefore, the correct answer is science.

    In ...., Niels Henrik Abel proved the striking result that there are equations of degree 5 whose solutions cannot be expressed by a (finite) formula, involving only arithmetic operations and radicals

    • A.

      1818

    • B.

      1999

    • C.

      1554

    • D.

      1824

    Correct Answer
    D. 1824
    Explanation
    In 1824, Niels Henrik Abel proved the result that there are equations of degree 5 whose solutions cannot be expressed by a finite formula involving only arithmetic operations and radicals. This means that there are certain equations of degree 5 that do not have a simple algebraic solution, and their solutions cannot be expressed using a combination of addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and taking roots. This was a significant discovery in mathematics, highlighting the limitations of algebraic methods in solving certain equations.

    In ...., Évariste Galois proved that most equations of degree higher than four cannot be solved by radicals.

    • A.

      1830

    • B.

      1880

    • C.

      1997

    • D.

      2000

    Correct Answer
    A. 1830
    Explanation
    In 1830, Évariste Galois proved that most equations of degree higher than four cannot be solved by radicals. This means that there is no general formula to find the roots of these equations using only the basic operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and taking roots. Galois' work was groundbreaking and laid the foundation for the development of abstract algebra and Galois theory.

    • B.

      Coefficient

    • C.

      Intercepts

    • D.

      Concavity

    Correct Answer
    B. Coefficient
    Explanation
    A real polynomial is a polynomial with real coefficients. The coefficients in a polynomial are the numbers multiplied by each variable term. Real coefficients indicate that all the numbers in the polynomial are real numbers, meaning they are not complex or imaginary. Therefore, the correct answer is "coefficient".
