# Do you use the distributive property with a monomial and a polynomial?

If you want to multiply the monomial by the polynomial, yes. In that case, you have to multiply the monomial by every term of the polynomial. For example:

a (b + c + d) = ab + ac + ad

More generally, when you multiply together two polynomials, you have to multiply each term in one polynomial by each term of the other polynomial; for example:

(a + b)(c + d) = ac + ad + bc + bd

All this can be derived from the distributive property (just apply the distributive property repeatedly).

### Is 3 plus square root 7 is a monomial?

A monomial is a special case of a polynomial which contains only one term. To identify a particular term of a polynomial (in x), we use the name associated with the power of x contained in a term. 3 + &radic;7 is a monomial of zero degree which has a special name such as a constant polynomial. Let's rewrite it as, 3x0 + (&radic;2)x0 = (3 + &radic;7)x0 , a monomial with an irrational coefficient = (3 + &radic;7)(1) = 3 + &radic;7.

### What are the conditions that an algebraic expression is not a polynomial?

Basically, an expression is not a polynomial when anything is done that is not allowed in a polynomial - for example, use any variable in the denominator of a monomial, use non-integral powers or radicals (which is basically the same as a non-integral power), use functions, etc.
