    No. For example, here are two fifth degree polynomials : v1(x) = x^5 + x^4 and v2(x) = -x^5, But v1(x) + v2(x) = x^4, which is not a fifth degree polynomial.

    That being said, the set \( P_5 \) being the defined as the set of all polynomials \( \it up \ to \) fifth degree is a vector space.

    ive been wondering if James has a pool of knowledge floating around inside his skull; or if its really a rolodex next to the computer with all this stuff in it :)

    I bought it off a Tibetan voodoo monk: "The Book of Answers". Cost me fifty gold dragoons and the blood of a che-wang white bat. But it was worth it.

    When I say the multiplication table for 7, I mean the whole thing. It's in infinitely small type. Can't read a damn thing.
