More about terms
Writing a function can have infinitely many terms:
But let's start with just the first term, which is the constant
If 5 were out only term, it's just like saying: 5 * (x^0)
To simplify that to 5:
1. we take (x^0) = 1 (anything to the power of zero is 1)
2. 5 * 1 = 5
If we have 2 terms, for example:
5x + 5
That's exactly like saying:
5(x^1) + 5(x^0)
As you can see, the more terms we add, the more the "powered" values on the "x" go up.
That's just the basics of terms, I'll type more on this
My iPad just crashed after a huge thing of text. I'm frustrated. I'm working on Docs now.. or just finding a link..
