Also on my previous question about why are polynomials important bobpursly can you expalin it to me towards what you ment about your responce because i still do not undertand...thanks when you get a chance.

Polynomials are important for computations. Most functions are not polynomials, but polynomials are the only things we can calculate. If a computer does some computations for some finite time, it can only have added up multiplied subtracted, divided a finite number of times...

To compute functions that are not polynomials we approximate them by polynomials.

good answer.
