Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There are only a few possibilities. Try some. 2+3*16+1 = 2 + 48 + 1 = 51  Nope 2+(3*16)+1 = 2 + 48 + 1 = 51  Whoops! Same thing. 2+3*(16+1) = 2 + 3*17 = 2 + 51 = 53  Nope. Try other things.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The sum, difference and product of two or more polynomials is always a polynomial. The quotient (division) of two polynomials is a rational function (which \(could\) be a polynomial)
