Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah, i think D is the only one that isn't because it has a negative exponent in it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1A polynomial is a sum of terms. Each term of a polynomial can only contain a number (called coefficient) and zero or more variables raised to a natural number (1, 2, 3, ...). If you have a variable as an exponent, or a variable raised to a negative exponenet, or a fractional exponent, that is not a polynomial.
