Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0u have o prove that its not a polynomial...thats what given in my book's exercise..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0still not sure what it is asking. you need some definition to work with. presumably you are supposed to use some property of the logs that polynomials don't have, but there are so many

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ln(ab)=ln(a)+ln(b) for example. what polynomial has that property?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0u have to prove it rigourously..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well you cannot prove it rigorously without appealing to a definition is my guess.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, you can't say that an apple is red, or is not orange, without defining what red and orange are!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no polynomial has a vertical asymptote. no polynomial is undefined at 0.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so? still any asymptote yes? limit as x>0 ln(x) =  infinity

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0use this definition:In mathematics, a polynomial is an expression of finite length constructed from variables (also known as indeterminates) and constants, using only the operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and nonnegative integer exponents.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the more i think about this the less sense it makes. i am not really sure what it is after. probably something along the lines of "sin(x) is not a polynomial because a polynomial of degree n has at most n real zeros"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so probably some property of the logs that polynomials do not possess. already suggested ln(ab)=ln(a)+ln(b)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well deriving from the main definition is the job..

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i think all the properties will come from the definition.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but f(xy)=f(x)+f(y) may be true for some polynomials..

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so tat property cant be used!!!

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0f(xy)=f(x)+f(y) is not true for any polynomial.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well f(2x)=constant+f(x) does not hold for any polynomial but with log

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0With calculus: Suppose it is equal to some \(p(t)\) then \(\lim_{t\to \infty} \log t/p(t)=1\) On the other hand, by L'hospital rule \(\lim \log t/p(t)=0\)
