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.

### Can second order polynomials have more than three terms?

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

### Is two terms a polynomial if the definition says more than two terms. Is a bi-nomial not part of the set of polynomials?

Two terms is a binomial. More than two terms is a polynomial. Binomials are not part of the set of polynomials.

Yes.

### What is a depressed polynomial?

It is nothing more than a polynomial that is equivalent to another, but has fewer terms. For an example, see Wikipedia, under "quartic equation".

### Is second-term polynominal a bionomial polynominal?

A binomial is an algebraic expression of the sum or the difference of two terms. A polynomial is an expression of more than two algebraic terms, esp. the sum of several terms that contain different powers of the same variable(s). The degree of a polynomial is the highest degree of its terms. Now that we have the definitions and the correct spellings out of the way, the answer to your question is a qualified no. There's no such thing as a second-term polynomial. I suspect you mean second degree, but both binomials and polynomials can be second-degree. There's also no such thing as a binomial polynomial. Expressions of two terms are binomials, more than two terms are polynomials, exactly three terms are trinomials.

### Is 5r plus 9r polynomial?

No. A polynomial is an expression of more than two algebraic terms, and usually contains different powers of the same variable.
