    A general polynomial is an equation that takes on the form \[Ax^2+Bx+c\] so anything besides this form will work. Ex. ln(x+2)=6

    No. It does not follow the form.

    \[f(x) = e^x\]

    Isn't a polynomial like: \[f(x) = a_0.x^n + a_1 . x^{n-1} + ... + a_{n-1}.x + a_n\]?

    e^x, e.x is just a polynomial equation of first degree.

    f(x) = sin(x) f(x) = ln(x) are also non-polynomial
