Anywhere. Provided it is not zero, and number p can be the leading coefficient of a polynomial. And any number q can be the constant term.

Yes.

No, a constant cannot be considered a polynomial because it is only a single term. A polynomial is defined as an expression that consists of the variables and coefficients that involves only the operations of subtraction, addition, multiplication, and the non-negative integer exponents.

a polynomial of degree...............is called a cubic polynomial

It is the Coefficient. It only refers to the given term that it is front. e.g. 2x^2 - 3x + 1 The '2' in front of 'x^2' only refers to 'x^2'. The '-3' in front of 'x' is the coefficient of '-3' The '1' is a constant.

TRue

An absolute term is the constant in a polynomial expression.

Yes.

it can be but it does not have to be to be a polynomial

it is called a constant term.

true!

Yes any constant or variable is a polynomial. To be most precise, 1 is a monomial meaning it has one term.

the numerical factor in a term of polynomial

A polynomial is an equation with more than 1 term. A term could be a constant, or a power of a variable (denoted by a letter, like x) times a constant. The order of the polynomial is determined by the highest power of the variable.A quadratic is a second order polynomial, because the highest power of x is x2.A first order polynomial has x1 (which is just x) as the highest power.

Differentiate it term by term.Each term of a polynomial is of the form a*x^n where a is a constant and n is a non-negative integer.So, the derivative of such a term is a*n*x^(n-1).

If a polynomial function, written in descending order, has integer coefficients, then any rational zero must be of the form ± p/q, where p is a factor of the constant term and q is a factor of the leading coefficient.
