okay, what about: f(x)=2^x? I dont think its a polynomial

And what is a monomials?

#, variable, or a product of them (ex. 5x)

Right. So is 2^x a monomial or the sum of them?

(also monomials can be terms like x^3, 5x^4, 20000x^1000000)

okay, um, h(x0=1/2x^4x^2+3x^3 in stadard form is h(x)=1/2x^4+3x^3x^2?

JamesJBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
is h(x) the sum of monomials?

greeneyes<3Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
I see the mistake, sorry. *h(x)
 2 years ago

JamesJBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
No, it's not. So h(x) is not a polynomial.

wait, but how is it different from f(x) or g(x)?
