## Problem 1

Here is a link to my function file: (shown for example purposes)

## Problem 2a

The polynomial is: \( f(x) = x^{20} - 2x^3 + \frac{3}{5}x^2 + \sqrt{2} \) (work to get this is shown on paper)

(the above is just an example of how to type the math)

## Problem 2b

We will now graph something for the problem.

clc, clear, clf, format t=linspace(0,4*pi); x=3*cos(t); y=4*sin(t); plot(x,y) title('Problem 2b') xlabel('x') ylabel('y')

My initial guess from the graph is: ??

## Problem 2c

below would be the MATLAB commands used to find the answer. (I'm just doing a command for example purposes.)

prob2c = sin(pi/3) + 25

prob2c = 25.8660

Based on above answer, blah blah blah:

## Problem 2d

The blah blah answer is: ?? (work shown on paper)
