# How to multiply a polynomial to another using NumPy in Python?

• Last Updated : 29 Aug, 2020

In this article, we will make a NumPy program to multiply one polynomial to another. Two polynomials are given as input and the result is the multiplication of two polynomials.

• The polynomial p(x) = C3 x2 + C2 x + C1  is represented in NumPy as : ( C1, C2, C3 ) { the coefficients (constants)}.
• Let take two polynomials p(x) and q(x) then multiply these to get r(x) = p(x) * q(x) as a result of multiplication of two input polynomials.
```If p(x) = A3 x2 + A2 x + A1
and
q(x) = B3 x2 + B2 x + B1

then result is r(x) = p(x) * q(x)

and output is

( (A1 * B1), (A2 * B1) + (A2 * B1),
(A3 * B1) + (A2 * B2) + (A1 * B3),
(A2 * B2) + (A3 * B2), (A3 * B3) ).
```

This can be calculated using the polymul() method of NumPy. This method evaluates the product of two polynomials and returns the polynomial resulting from the multiplication of two input polynomials ‘p1’ and ‘p2’.

Syntax:

`numpy.polymul(p1, p2)`

Below is the implementation with some examples :

Example 1:

## Python3

 `# importing package``import` `numpy`` ` `# define the polynomials``# p(x) = 5(x**2) + (-2)x +5`` ` `px ``=` `(``5``, ``-``2``, ``5``)``# q(x) = 2(x**2) + (-5)x +2``qx ``=` `(``2``, ``-``5``, ``2``)`` ` `# mul the polynomials``rx ``=` `numpy.polynomial.polynomial.polymul(px, qx)`` ` `# print the resultant polynomial``print``(rx)`

Output :

```[ 10. -29.  30. -29.  10.]
```

Example 2 :

## Python3

 `# importing package``import` `numpy`` ` `# define the polynomials``# p(x) = 2.2``px ``=` `(``0``, ``0``, ``2.2``)`` ` `# q(x) = 9.8(x**2) + 4``qx ``=` `(``9.8``, ``0``, ``4``)`` ` `# mul the polynomials``rx ``=` `numpy.polynomial.polynomial.polymul(px, qx)`` ` `# print the resultant polynomial``print``(rx)`

Output :

```[  0.     0.    21.56   0.     8.8 ]
```

Example 3 :

## Python3

 `# importing package``import` `numpy`` ` `# define the polynomials``# p(x) = (5/3)x``px ``=` `(``0``, ``5``/``3``, ``0``)`` ` `# q(x) = (-7/4)(x**2) + (9/5)``qx ``=` `(``-``7``/``4``, ``0``, ``9``/``5``)`` ` `# mul the polynomials``rx ``=` `numpy.polynomial.polynomial.polymul(px, qx)`` ` `# print the resultant polynomial``print``(rx)`

Output :

```[ 0.         -2.91666667  0.          3.        ]
```
