Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hints: To answer this kind of question, we have to understand what a binomial is, and in turn, what makes a "term". The following definitions explain what they are. In algebra, a \(binomial\) is a polynomial which is the sum of two \(terms\), which are monomials. It is the simplest kind of polynomial after the monomials. Examples: 3x+2 is a binomial, 2x is a monomial, x^2+3x+3 is a trinomial, x^3+x^22x+3 is a polynomial. In fact, all four examples are also polynomials. A \(term\) is the product of a constant (positive or negative) multiplied by one or more variables raised to a power. For an expression to be a polynomial, the variables of each term must be raised to a nonnegative integer power. Examples: 3x^3y^2, +9, 4x^2, 1/x are all terms, but 1/x cannot be part of a polynomial because 1/x = \(x^{1}\), which is not a positive integer power.
