    Of course, we should agree that it IS a polynomial, first.

    Our friend Paul writes with clarity about polynomials at the link: http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu/Classes/Alg/Polynomials.aspx Two blurbs from his notes are attached below. It is possible to have a polynomial with three variables as does the polynomial: 9x² y^³ - 2x³ z

    You are asking about the number of terms in the polynomial P(x) = 9x² y^³ - 2x³ z To help you with that, study the attached chart.

    It's not rocket science...it's a binomial
