Horner’s method
The Horner’s method is an algorithm that evaluates polynomials. The following pseudocode shows how to use this method to find the
value of anxn + an1xn1 + . . . + a1x + a0 at x = c. procedure Horner(c, a0, a1, a2, . . . , an : real numbers) y := an for i := 1 to n y := y × c + ani end {y = ancn + an1cn1 + . . . + a1c + a0} (a) Evaluate x2 + 5x + 3 at x = 2 by working through each step of the algorithm. (b) Exactly how many multiplications and additions are used by this algorithm to evaluate a polynomial of degree n at x = c? (Do not count additions used to increment the loop variable.) please help me in this ... i am not sure how to solve that thanx

Oh, a first grader could solve this problem...
A first grader with an IQ of three thousand and nine, that is! I think you should go to Mr. Hui for this. I doubt the middle schoolers that compose the majority of this forum could begin to understand what you're talking about. I can't, at least

What? What are you talking about? Is this spam? It looks an awful lot like it.

Well I just read a precalculus book a while back. That doesn't count when I apply to highschool, and it hardly counts when you talk to people online since precalc and other subjects vary. I really bet since Horner's Method has lots to do with synthetic division some smart genius got to learn it in algebra 1. Lucky genius. But it is usually in precalc I think I learned from the people I have encountered.
