Hello Student,
Please find answer to your question below

P(x) = x^n + a_{1}x^{n-1} + a_{2}x^{n-2} + a_{3}x^{n-3} + ..........+a_{n-1}x + a_{n}
Since a1, a2, a3…......anall are greater than or equal to zero.
P(2) = 2^n + a_{1}2^{n-1} + a_{2}2^{n-2} + a_{3}2^{n-3} + ..........+a_{n-1}2 + a_{n}
Since all the coefficients are greater than or equal to zero. No coeffiecient is negative.
So minimum of P(2) will be at when all the coefficients are zero.
[P(2)]_{min} = 2^n
