Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1okay, what about: f(x)=2^x? I dont think its a polynomial

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Any linear polynomial is of the form ax + b, where x is a variable and a, b are constants

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1#, variable, or a product of them (ex. 5x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Right. So is 2^x a monomial or the sum of them?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2(also monomials can be terms like x^3, 5x^4, 20000x^1000000)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1okay, um, h(x0=1/2x^4x^2+3x^3 in stadard form is h(x)=1/2x^4+3x^3x^2?

JamesJ

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I see the mistake, sorry. *h(x)

JamesJ

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1wait, but how is it different from f(x) or g(x)?
