Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Well, when you expand out the binomial brackets, you'll get 4 terms from that. But you'll have liketerms and combine two together. And after expanding everything and all that jazz, we're left with `three terms being added together` So we would classify this as a `trinomial`.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So that's the last little bit of information we want :) In total, we would say that it's a `third degree` `trinomial`.
