Do you stutter or have an actual interest in polynomial equations?

Hehe! Howdy!
No, I just happened to give a mini-seminar on his artillery fire theories during a History of Science course! The name thus entered my mind immediately as my last contact with Physics!
Unfortunately my mathematics only extends to College-level first year within Chemistry and Biology although I have always felt quite interested in it.
Assuming you are knowledgeable, which I'm sure you are, would you care to describe what polynomials are please?
Thanks!

Just something of the form $a_0 + a_1 x + a_2 x^2 + ... + a_nx^n$. So for example, $x^2 + 2x + 3$ is a quadratic polynomial.

Ok thanks again-I guess I'll have to study up on it and keep an eye out for you.
