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

polynomial equation.

  • We will use the formula as-

Step by Step Solution

Step 1. Given information

We have to find the number of hexagons in tenth ring.

Step 2. Concept used

We will use the following formula-

Put the value of in the formula and do simplification.

Step 3. Calculation

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.
