This program will answer most questions you have about a given polynomial except what it is. You must find the polynomial. The degree is less than 8, the coefficients are integers, and all the "action" is between -100 and 100. The program gives clues to the polynomial by giving the user information about the polynomial and its first and second derivitives(i.e. roots, graphs, and by evaluating these at a point. Sample polynomials are provided.
