This paper considers the approximation of a monomial $x^n$ over the interval $[-1,1]$ by a lower-degree polynomial . The error in the approximationin the supremum norm has an exact expression with an interesting probabilisticinterpretation . We use this interpretation along with concentrationinequalities to develop a useful upper bound for the error .
