How to Graph Binomials

By Stefan Robert

When graphing a binomial, you'll need to break the equation down into its individual parts. Graph binomials with help from an expert in computers, with two degrees in both Computer Science and Applied Mathematics in this free video clip.

Hi, my name is Stefan. I'm going to be speaking on how to graph binomials. Let's take a general binomial, Y = A, X to the N + 2 binomial, I'll call this B X to the J or I'll put a side note, J is less than N. I am mainly concerned with this leading term here so when N is odd and A is greater than 0, here's how the graph is going to look with he fall to the left raised to the right and when N is odd and A is less than 0 the graph will look like this, raise to the left, fall to the right. Now when N is even and A is greater than 0, the graph is going to raise up, both sides and when N is even and A is less than 0, the graph will look like this. It's going to fall down. And that's how you graph binomials in two terms.
