Question

Indicate whether the expression defines a polynomial function.

R(x) = 1/x  +6
If it is a polynomial function, identify the following. (If it is not a polynomial function, enter DNE for all three answers.)

(b) Identify the constant term.

(c) State the degree.

Step 1

Refer to the question, we have to identify whether the given function R(x) = 1/x  +6

is polynomial or not.

Step 2
