Is the sum of polynomials of degree m and n has degree max[m, n] a True statement? I have been reading about this but it doesn't make sense
If by the degree of a polynomial you mean the highest exponent withOriginally Posted by rbur101
non-zero coefficient then the answer is no.
Consider polynomials $\displaystyle P_1(x)=x^3$ and $\displaystyle P_2(x)=-x^3$, then their sum is a polynomial
of degree $\displaystyle 0$
