Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1C. only has two terms. That cannot be a trinomial. For this problem you need two things. You need a polynomial with 3 terms. One of the three terms must be a plain number with no variables multiplying it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Notice that 4x^2  3 + x is really 4x^2 + (3) + x, so you have three terms, 4x^2, 3, and x.
