A trinomial

polynomials have 4 or more terms. I learned about that today in my math class. monomial =1 binomial=2 trinomial=3 polynomial=4+

That already is a polynomial in standard form.

First off, it is NOT A QUINTIC! Typically a polynomial of four or more terms is called "a polynomial of n terms", where n is the number of terms. Only the one, two, and three term polynomials are referred to by a particular naming convention.

As many as you like. The highest power of the variable in question (usually x) defines the degree of the polynomial. If the degree is n, the polynomial can have n+1 terms. (If there are more then the polynomial can be reduced.) But there is NO LIMIT to the value of n.

A trinomial

An example of a polynomial with 3 terms is 3x3 + 4x + 20, because there are 3 different degrees of x in the polynomial.

Polynomials have terms, but not sides. One with exactly three terms is a "trinomial". Polygons have sides. One of those with exactly three sides is a "triangle".

No. A monomial (watch the spelling, please - only one "no") is a special case of a polynomial. A polynomial may have any number of terms; a monomial has exactly one term.

A polynomial of order 3 (a cubic) or higher can have more than three terms. However, the the following polynomial, even though of order 7, has only 2 terms: x7 - 23.
