Homework Help: Math (Algebra)

Posted by Dan on Tuesday, May 21, 2013 at 1:34am.

A number is called algebraic if there is a polynomial with rational coefficients for which the number is a root. For example,√2 is algebraic because it is a root of the polynomial x^2−2. The number √2+√3+√5 is also algebraic because it is a root of a monic polynomial of degree 8, namely x^8+ax^7+bx^6+cx^5+dx^4+ex^3+fx^2+gx+h. Find |a|+|b|+|c|+|d|+|e|+|f|+|g|+|h|.
