Quadratic equations and cubic equations are examples of polynomials.
A polynomial in x is of the form:
Solving EQN:p(x)=0 will give n roots, some (or all) of which might be complex, although
Solving EQN:p(x)=0 will give n roots, some (or all) of which might be complex (see complex number), although
some may be repeated roots. For example, EQN:x^2-2x+1=0 has two roots,
but both are equal to 1.
