Last question, I needed to use the general definition of a polynomial which is:

$$a_nt^n+a_{n-1}t^{n-1}+\cdots+a_1t+a_0$$

But I needed to type it all, if I could find templates it would be easier/faster.

Does such a thing exist?

In my opinion, it is faster to type than look for this expression on such database. In addition, you would have to check carefully to see if it is your expression. –  Sigur Aug 20 '12 at 1:40

If I understand correctly, you can use Wikipedia to get some of these LaTeX-formatted formulas. For example, the following is copied directly from Wikipedias article on polynomials $f(x) = a_n x^n + a_{n-1} x^{n-1} + \cdots + a_2 x^2 + a_1 x + a_0$. Just go into edit-mode, and the formatting is very LaTeX-like. –  utdiscant Aug 20 '12 at 1:41
