Hello all,

I hope I find the help I need here. I am sorry I am not good enough in C++ yet. This is my first year so please be patient with me.

This is my problem:

p = 4x^5 + 7x^3 - x^2 +9

the ADT operations are:

p.degree() is 5 ( the highest power of a term with a nonzero coefficient )

p.coefficient (3) is 7 ( the coefficient of the x^3 term )

p.coefficient (4) is 0 ( the coeffient of a missing term is implicitly 0 )

p.ChangeCoefficient (-3, 7) produces the polynomial

p = -3x^7 + 4x^5 + 7x^3 - x^2 +9

so the question is : Using these ADT operations, write statements to perform the following tasks:

a. Display the coefficient of the term that has the highest power.

b. Increase the coefficient of the x^3 term by 8.

c. Compute the sum of two polynomials.

My answers so far:

a.

`cout<< "The coefficient of the term that has the highest power is: " << p.degree();`

b.

`cout<< "The new coefficient of x^3 is: " << p.changeCoefficient(7+8, 3);`

c. I couldn't get this one. I am a little bit confused.

Thanks for your help in advance
