### Valuation, online calculus

#### Summary :

The valuation function allows to calculate the valuation of a polynomial online.

## Valuation of a polynomial

The valuation of a polynomial is the smallest exponent of this polynomial. The calculator is able to calculate the valuation of a polynomial online.

## Calculating the valuation of a polynomial

The calculator can be used to determine the valuation of any polynomial.

Thus, to obtain the valuation of a polynomial defined by the following expression x^3+x^2+1, one must enter : valuation(x^3+x^2+1) after calculation, the result 0 is returned.

## Calculation of the valuation of a polynomial with symbolic coefficients

The calculator is also able to calculate the valuation of a polynomial that uses letters as coefficients.

Thus, to obtain the valuation of a polynomial defined by the following expression : ax^2+bx one must enter valuation(ax^2+bx) after calculation, the answer 1 is returned.

#### Syntax :

valuation(polynomial)

#### Examples :

valuation(x^3+x^2), returns 2
