Let P and Q be polynomials. Find

lim x P ( x ) Q ( x )

if the degree of P is (a) less than the degree of Q and (b) greater than the degree of Q.

(a)

To determine

To find: The value of limxP(x)Q(x) if the degree of P is lesser than the degree of Q.

Explanation of Solution

Theorem used:

If r>0 is a rational number then limx1xr=0.

Calculation:.

Let P and Q be the polynomials, such that:

P(x)=anxn+an1xn1+...........+a1x+a0 and Q(x)=bmxm+bm1xm1+...........+b1x+b0.

Where an0,bm0  and 0n<m.

Consider the function f(x)=P(x)Q(x).

Take the limit of f(x) as x approaches infinity.

limxf(x)=limxanxn+an1xn1+.......+a1x+a0bmxm+bm1xm1+

(b)

To determine

To find: The value of limxP(x)Q(x) if the degree of P is greater than the degree of Q.
