@charlotte123 >>The expression has a negative coefficient Negative coefficients ARE allowed in polynomials. Consider P(x) = x^3  5x  1 Some other option is the correct answer @realmadridCR7

I tried to help here but realized that I don't know what the algebraic expression for the possible polynomial is. Then, the OP ran off when I asked for a clarificiation. http://openstudy.com/users/directrix#/updates/52ad07a7e4b0f72fdcf74c7b

33 y squared all over x squared  62y2xz  35z2y2 > 33y^2/x^2  62y^2xz  35z^2y^2 The expression has a variable raised to a negative exponent < I see no variable raised to a negative exponent In the expression. The expression has a variable raised to a fraction < I see no variable raised to a fraction In the expression. If It Is Not The expression has a negative coefficient > It Would Be The expression has a variable in the denominator of a fraction.

The coefficients in a polynomial can be fractions  But there are no variables In denominators < Seems Like The Last One Is The Answer! @Directrix Thanks For The help!

I think I'll agree to that. But, I still am unsure what this expression really is when written in symbolic form with no words. 33 y squared all over x squared  62y2xz  35z2y2 What do you think it is?

I believe It would be: 33y^2/x^2  62y^2xz  35z^2y^2

Are you saying this: 33y^2/ (x^2  62y^2xz  35z^2y^2)
