# Weierstrass approximation does not hold on the entire Real Line

This is a question from Bergman’s companion to Rudin.

a) Show that the only polynomials which are bounded as functions $\mathbb{R} \rightarrow \mathbb{R}$ are constant functions.

(I can do this) Also done here

b)Deduce that if a sequence of polynomials $P_n:\mathbb{R} \rightarrow \mathbb{R}$ converges uniformly on $\mathbb{R}$ to $f$ then $f$ is a polynomial.

I figure that the uniform convergence implies at some point (for large n) the polynomials must have the same highest power because otherwise large values of $\mathbb{R}$ would destroy any hope of uniform convergence. Then eventually the second highest power must be equal as well by a similar argument…Then I guess you could make a similar argument for the co-efficients by plugging in large values of x, the difference in each co-efficient must be quite small in order to maintain the uniform convergence.

I would like some help understanding if/why this means that the limit actually is a polynomial.
