SS3 Mathematics Revision: Integration and Evaluation Simple Algebraic Functions

What is Algebraic Function? In mathematics, an algebraic function is a function that can be defined as the root of a polynomial equation. Quite often algebraic functions can be expressed using a finite number of terms, involving only the algebraic operations addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and raising to a fractional power. Examples of such functions are: Some [...]
