RandomPolynomial( <Degree> , <Minimum for Coefficients>, <Maximum for Coefficients> )
Returns a randomly generated polynomial in x of degree d, whose (integer) coefficients are in the range from minimum to maximum, both included.
Examples:
  • RandomPolynomial(0, 1, 2) yields either 1 or 2.
  • RandomPolynomial(2, 1, 2) yields a random polynomial with a degree of two and only 1 and 2 as coefficients, for example 2x2 + x + 1.


CAS Syntax

The following command is only available in the Menu view cas.svg CAS View.

RandomPolynomial( <Variable>, <Degree> , <Minimum for Coefficients>, <Maximum for Coefficients> )
Returns a randomly generated polynomial in Variable of degree d, whose (integer) coefficients are in the range from minimum to maximum, both included.
Examples:
  • RandomPolynomial(a, 0, 1, 2) yields either 1 or 2.
  • RandomPolynomial(a, 2, 1, 2) yields a random polynomial with a degree of two and only 1 and 2 as coefficients, for example 2a2 + a + 1.
Note: In both cases if minimum or maximum are not integers, round(minimum) and round(maximum) are used instead.
