Let f(x) = x^14  - 7x^9 - 3x^2 + 2 and g(x) = 2x^14 + 3x^10 - 6x^8 + 2x - 1.  Let b be a constant.  What is the smallest possible degree of the polynomial f(x) + b*g(x)?

 

If a is the constant the the largest possible degree of is f(x) + a*g(x)?

If  b   =    -1/2

The  smallest  possible  degree  is    10

 

As long  as  a   is NOT  =   -1/2

The  latgest possible degree =   14
