a group of terms with a variable and a constant

that's the simplest i can put it

Would you like to elaborate it? @lgbasallote

can we call y=x^2 as polynomial

^that's an elaboration

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

that is a polynomial function

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

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

0 is also okay for the degree because then it's the constant term :P

Expression doesn't have an =, equation does have an =

The what about x^2.5 @lgbasallote

equations contain equal signs nuff said

2 has a degree of 1.

since it has a decimal point it is not @shahzadjalbani

the degree has to be INTEGERS (non-negative)...which means whole numbers

@ParthKohli 2 has a degree of 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.

*facepalm*

\( \color{Black}{\Rightarrow 2^1 \times x^0 }\)

Thank you all I got it .................!

\( \color{Black}{\Rightarrow x \ne 0 \text{ btw} }\)

The degree of a (nonzero) constant term is 0
