you have something against the digit 0? Why drag in the Greek letter phi? Assuming you want to find vales of x which make the equation true, you have three choices: 8=0 x = 0 x-1 = 0 I guess you can find the needed x values now, right? The reason we always set the product on ...

if there is no value of y for some x, then it is not even a relation, much less a function. There must be exactly one y for each x.

easy. All polynomials are functions. each value of x produces a single value of y. This assuming I am correctly interpreting what you mean by a "polynomial equation."

maths quartic equation need help
since the polynomial has real coefficients, complex roots must come in conjugate pairs. SO, it has another root of 1-2i (x-(1+2i))(x-(1-2i)) = ((x-1)-2i)((x-1)+2i) = ((x-1)^2 - (2i)^2) = x^2-2x+5 Now divide the quartic by that, and you will be left with another quadratic, ...
