binomial

A polynomial discriminant is defined in terms of the difference in the roots of the polynomial equation. Since a binomial has only one root, there is nothing to take its difference from and so in such a situation, the discriminant is a meaningless concept.

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.

Use the "F-O-I-L" Method when multiplying two binomials. F-O-I-L stands for First, Outer, Inner, Last. Multiply the first terms together, then the outer terms, the inner terms, and the last terms.

You multiply each element of the binomial into each element of the trinomial and then combine like terms. For example, (ax + b)*(cx2 + dx + e) = acx3 + adx2 + aex + bcx2 + bdx + be = acx3 + (ad + bc)x2 + (ae + bd)x + be

A binomial is a mathematical term for a polynomial with two terms.

A binomial coefficient is a coefficient of any of the terms in the expansion of the binomial (x+y)^n.

No, it isn't. You can express 3x3-2x2 as 3x3-2x2+0x+0, so it actually has four terms. The definition of a binomial is an expression in the form Ax+b, where A and b are constants, so 3x3-2x2 is not a binomial. It is actually a quartomial.

Not in rational terms.
