Writing in MATH Answer the question that was posed at the beginning of the lesson.
Where are polynomial functions found in nature?
Include the following in your answer:
• an explanation of how you could use the equation to find the number of
hexagons in the tenth ring, and
• any other examples of patterns found in nature that might be modeled by a
We have to find the number of hexagons in tenth ring.
We will use the following formula-
Put the value of in the formula and do simplification.
For finding the number of hexagons in the tenth ring, we have to use formula as-
Put the value of and then do simplifications. We will use hit and trial method because in this equation we are solving a degree of four.
After that try to find the value of n and that will be our answer.
Some other examples are include pineapples, pinecones, and flower petals.
