Python program to compute a Polynomial Equation

PythonServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

When it is required to compute a polynomial equation, a simple iteration along with the ‘*’ operator is used.

Example

Below is a demonstration of the same

my_list = [3, -6, 3, -1, 23, -11, 0, -8]
print("The list is :")
print(my_list)

x = 3
my_list_length = len(my_list)

my_result = 0

for i in range(my_list_length):
   my_sum = my_list[i]

   for j in range(my_list_length - i - 1):
      my_sum = my_sum * x

   my_result = my_result + my_sum

print("The result is :")
print(my_result)

Output

The list is :
[3, -6, 3, -1, 23, -11, 0, -8]
The result is :
3349

Explanation

  • A list is defined and is displayed on the console.

  • A variable is assigned an integer value.

  • The length of the list is assigned to a variable.

  • A variable is initialized to 0.

  • The list is iterated over, and the elements are assigned to a variable.

  • The list is iterated again, and the variable previously used is multiplied with the integer previously defined.

  • The variable initialized to 0 is added to the integer.

  • This is the output that is displayed on the console.
