Would you like to elaborate it? @lgbasallote

A polynomial is an expression that consists only of the addition, subtraction, and multiplication of nonnegative integer exponents of variables and constants. They look like: x^2+2x+1, or x50, or x^5+x^4+x^3+x^2+x+1

So, you can't have 1/x as a term, for example. You can't have x^2/3 as a term either. But you can have x taken to any natural number power.

x^2 is a polynomial. Polynomials are expressions, not equations

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
that is a polynomial function

Also, a negative power can't be a polynomial because then that includes division.

Generally we name them after the number of terms they have, also. So if it is x+1, it's a binomial. x^2+x+1 is a trinomial. More than three terms is a polynomial.

what qualifies polynomials is that the degree MUST be a nonnegative integer (i.e. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

Give me basic definations of expression ,equation and further more if you remeber? @nbouscal

nbouscalBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
0 is also okay for the degree because then it's the constant term :P

so 2 is a polynomial...it has a degree of zero x is a polynomial with degree 1 x^2 is polynomial with dgree 2 and so on

2 has a degree of 1.

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
since it has a decimal point it is not @shahzadjalbani

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
the degree has to be INTEGERS (nonnegative)...which means whole numbers
 one year ago

nbouscalBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
the exponent has to be a natural number. A number in the set {0,1,2,...}. No fractions or decimals or negatives allowed

@ParthKohli 2 has a degree of 0

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
you look at the exponent of the variable...the exponent of the variable in 2 is 2x^0

I see but the highest power is 1.
