    Hint: A term is the product of a constant (number, positive or negative) multiplied by one or more variables. For a term to be part of a polynomial, the exponent of each variable must be a non-zero integer power. For example, 1/x^2 cannot be a term in a polynomial because the power is -2, so not non-zero.

    A term is a number alone or a number multiplied by one or more variables. A polynomial is a sum or terms. A binomial is a polynomial of exactly two terms.

    3/x is not a term because it is not a number multiplied by a variable. It is a number (3) divided by a variable (x).
