Python Program to Compute a Polynomial Equation

Polynomial equations are fundamental mathematical expressions used in a wide range of applications. This Python program computes the value of a polynomial equation, allowing users to input the coefficients and a specific value for the variable.

Problem statement

Given a polynomial equation of any degree, expressed as y = a * x^3 + b * x^2 + c * x + d, the program aims to calculate the value of y by taking user inputs for the coefficients a, b, c, d, and the value of x.

Python Program to Compute a Polynomial Equation

# Function to compute the polynomial equation
def compute_polynomial(a, b, c, d, x):
    return a * x**3 + b * x**2 + c * x + d

# Taking input from the user
a = float(input("Enter the coefficient of x^3: "))
b = float(input("Enter the coefficient of x^2: "))
c = float(input("Enter the coefficient of x: "))
d = float(input("Enter the constant term: "))
x = float(input("Enter the value of x: "))

# Computing the polynomial equation
result = compute_polynomial(a, b, c, d, x)

# Displaying the result
print("The value of the polynomial equation is:", result)
