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

    Any linear polynomial is of the form ax + b, where x is a variable and a, b are constants

    #, 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^4-x^2+3x^3 in stadard form is h(x)=1/2x^4+3x^3-x^2?

    is h(x) the sum of monomials?

    I see the mistake, sorry. *h(x)

    No, it's not. So h(x) is not a polynomial.

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