# Integer Coeffieicent of Degree

 P: 9 Hello all, Can anyone explain what "Integer Coefficient of Degree n" where n is some positive integer (e.g 6) of a polynomial refers to? I know what integers and coefficients are but I don't know what the above refers to. For example if you had something like this: Suppose some polynomial f(x) exists with integer coefficients of degree 12 where f(0)=2 What would this polynomial look like/ how would you write or calculate the expression? Thank You Shihab

 Suppose some polynomial f(x) exists with integer coefficients of degree 12 where f(0)=2
I think that the phrase "of degree 12" refers to the polynomial, not the integer coefficients. A better way to write the sentence is

 Suppose that there exists a polynomial of degree 12 and having integer coefficients such that f(0) = 2.
 PF Patron Sci Advisor Thanks Emeritus P: 38,429 Or: "Suppose some polynomial f(x) exists, with integer coefficients, of degree 12 where f(0)=2" Note the commas. Stll better would be "Suppose some polynomial f(x), with integer coefficients, exists, of degree 12 where f(0)=2
