## anonymous one year ago How do i find degree's in polynomial! Example: 2nd degree, 1st degree, etc. PLEASE HELP WILL MEDAL!

1. skullpatrol

The degree of a polynomial is the greatest of the degrees of its terms, after it has been simplified.

2. anonymous

Can you show me an example please :]

3. skullpatrol

ok, you need to first understand what the degree of a monomial is.

4. skullpatrol

The degree of a monomial is the sum of the degrees of factors in the monomial such as \$\$\Huge x^2yz\$\$ has degree 4

5. anonymous

Why is it degree 4?

6. skullpatrol

2 + 1 + 1

7. anonymous

Sorry I am confused.?.

Oh so that is how you determine the degrees thank you so much! Would you mind helping me with one more question?

11. skullpatrol

sure

12. anonymous

Thank you!

13. anonymous

Can you give me an example of monomial and binomial and trinomial.

14. skullpatrol

mono = 1, bi = 2, tri = 3

15. skullpatrol

these prefixes tell you how many terms the polynomial has

16. anonymous

Can you tell me how you determine how it is classified as that?

17. skullpatrol

Count the number of terms

18. skullpatrol

recall in a + b, a and b are called terms

19. anonymous

Would a good example be for monomial be 2a+3?

20. anonymous

Or is that binomial?

21. skullpatrol

it is a binomial

22. anonymous

So 2a is a monomial?

23. skullpatrol

yes

24. skullpatrol

a monomial is a variable, a numeral, or the product of a numeral and one or more variables

25. anonymous

I'm so sorry. Would you like to help me do another question?

26. skullpatrol

sure

27. anonymous

Okay, thank you so much i really appreciate it!

28. anonymous

How do i multiply a polynomial?

29. skullpatrol

use the distributive property

30. anonymous

Can you help me do one please :]

I am sorry can you use numbers instead of variables... I get confused sorry...

36. anonymous

So then it would be (1+2)4+(3+4)6???
