    no, it is irrational. polynomials contain variables that have different exponents on them

    constants are still polynomials

    \[a_n x^{n}+a_{n-1}x^{n-1}+ \cdots a_2 x^2+a_1 x_1+a_0 \text{ is a polynomial } \\ \text{ where } n \text{ is a positive integer } \\ \text{ and } a_i \text{ is a real number }\]

    And I guess you could define polynomials with complex coefficients instead

    And above I mean to say all the exponents are either positive integers or zero

    Pi is not a polymonial. It is an irrational number.

    pi is a irrational number I agree with that but pi is also a polynomial

    But aren't polymonials equations, usually?
