A polynomial with three terms is called a trinomial. Example: xÂ² + 16 + 18 is a trinomial. It has three terms (xÂ²), (16), and (18)

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.

A trinomial is a polynomial with three terms.

That already is a polynomial in standard form.

No, if it is of degree 4, it can have 4 linear factors, regardless of the number of terms.For example, x squared + 5x + 6 = (x+3)(x+2). The unfactored polynomial has three terms, and is of degree 2. Similarly, you can multiply four linear terms together; and you will get a polynomial of degree 4, which has up to 5 terms.

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".

A binomial is a polynomial with exactly 2 terms.

No. A second-order polynomial is of the form ax2 + bx + c, which is three terms exactly. More is impossible.

NO!!!!!!! it does not depends on ter,ms but on powers

An expression with two terms is called a binomial.

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.

this term 2x is not a polynomial. this term is a monomial. since only one term was listed it can not be a polynomial. A polynomial is like four or more terms. a trinomial is three terms and a binomial is two terms.
