Degenerate Equation. It occasionally happens that when all the terms of an equation are transposed to the left member that member is factorable.

A function obtained by applying to x one or more of the algebraic operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and the extraction of roots), a limited number of times, is called an algebraic function of x. For example, x 3, _x_, and 3 x 2 tions of x. Vl- x are algebraic func- x 59. Transcendent Function. If a function of x is not algebraic, it is called a transcendent function of x. Thus, log x and sin x are transcendent functions of x. 60. Important Functions. Although mathematics inclmles the study of various functions, there are certain ones, such as y = ax", which are of special importance.
