Trinomials, Binomials and Monomials
It means the sum of several monomials.
This is a tough question. There aren't many jobs that use monomials and polynomials daily but if you want to have a career as a math teacher you have to know this.
monomials are just polynomials with one term, i.e. 2xy2, n3, etc. A binomial has two terms, i.e. 3xy2+2, etc.
I think it's just polynomials after that. I don't think there's a quadranomial or anything.
You use long division of polynomials.
A polynomial is any expression (i.e. no = sign) that is the sum of several monomials. Subtraction is ok, but to be a polynomial they can't be divided, and they can't be multiplied with parentheses. Polynomials: 5x+4xy; x2+3x-2; 42x-1. Not Polynomials: (10x)/2+4xy; x(x+3); 45. ---- A monomial is one or more numbers or variables multiplied together. For example, 5x, 23, x2, and 4a3b are monomials. The exponents must be natural numbers.
Numbers have factors. Monomials and polynomials can have factors. Equations don't have factors.
They are both made up of monomials.Binomial is a type of polynomial with only two terms.So almost everything that applies to polynomial applies to a binomial.For example, both are finite sums of monomials.. Both have only positive or zero exponents on all the terms.
