no it is a binomial. terms in an algebriac expression are separated by addition or subtraction ( + or -) symbols and must not be like terms. then just count the terms. one term = monomial, 2 terms = binomial, 3 terms = trinomial. More than 3 terms are usually just referred to as polynomials.

Are subtraction and division commutative and associative?

Subtraction is commutative... in a way. You can convert any subtraction to an addition. 7 - 2 is NOT the same as 2 - 7. However, when turning the terms around, you may keep the sign, so that 7 - 2 is the same as -2 + 7. This is justified by the commutative law of addition. Similarly with division: 10 / 2 is not the same as 2 / 10, but you can convert 10 / 2 into (1/2) x 10.

What is expression in math terms?

It is a collection of terms which are combined using various mathematical operations such as addition, subtraction, multipplication, division, power, inverse, trigonometric functions etc. It does not have an equality of inequality relationship - which would make it an equation or inequality.

How do you count terms in polynomials?

Terms in polynomials are simply separated by a plus or minus sign. For example, if you had: x+12x, that would be a binomial (two terms). A trinomial is when the expression has three or more terms, 7x+12x-6x.
