I have a file i need to write a unit test for that includes a number of polynomial functions, and i need to provide test data to the function to calculate and compare them with an exact answer(preferably a whole number that i could easily compute myself with some math). I have to test:
- Synthetic Division
- Quadratic roots
- Cubic Roots
- Quartic Roots
most of these will be easy to come up with 'simple' equations to test, but i'm a little stuck once i reach synthetic division and multiplication of polynomials. Could anyone give me a couple "nice" equations that equate to some whole numbers i can use in my tests, even better a method for creating such equations to test?
