Hello, Sorry if this may seem a silly question, but I readed the Mathematica help and found no references. Is there any function that can generate a polynomial of a given degree? e.g. For degree 1, f[x] would return a x + b For degree 2, f[x] would return a x^2 + b x + c (quadratic equation) For degree 3, f[x] would return a x^3 + b x^2 + c x + d (quadratic equation) Thanks, Renan - Canoas, RS, Brazil
