In a polynomial function, the variable x is raised to some integer power. f(x) = 5x³ + 8x⁵ g(x) = (x + 5)² In an exponential function, some real number is raised to the power of variable x or some function of x f(x) = 5ˣ g(x) = eˣ⁺²

addition of coefficient

Quadratic equations are called quadratic because quadratus is Latin for "square"; in the leading term the variable is squared.

The y-intercept is whatever number (with no variable) is added onto the end of the equation y=mx+b. In this case b is the y-intercept. In y=15x the y-intercept is 0 because there is no number without a variable on the end.

The answer will depend on what aspect is the variable.

The value of a polynomial is determined by that of the variable.

A value of the variable when the polynomial has a value of 0. Equivalently, the value of the variable when the graph of the polynomial intersects the variable axis (usually the x-axis).

Evaluating a polynomial is finding the value of the polynomial for a given value of the variable, usually denoted by x. Solving a polynomial equation is finding the value of the variable, x, for which the polynomial equation is true.

The degree of a polynomial is the highest power of the variable.

The Degree (for a polynomial with one variable) is the largest exponent of that variable.

The Degree (for a polynomial with one variable, like x) is the largest exponent of that variable.

The degree of a polynomial is the highest exponent on any independent variable in the polynomial.

A polynomial has 2 or more variables. It can also have a negative exponent and a fractional exponent. It's different from a monomial.****BrandonW****

No. A polynomial has positive powers of the variable.

No. A matrix polynomial is an algebraic expression in which the variable is a matrix. A polynomial matrix is a matrix in which each element is a polynomial.

Those words refer to the degree, or highest exponent that modifies a variable, or the polynomial.Constant=No variables in the polynomialLinear=Variable raised to the first powerQuadratic=Variable raised to the second power (or "squared")Cubic=Variable raised to the third power (or "cubed")Quartic=Variable raised to the fourth powerQuintic=Variable raised to the fifth powerAnything higher than that is known as a "6th-degree" polynomial, or "21st-degree" polynomial. It all depends on the highest exponent in the polynomial. Remember, exponents modifying a constant (normal number) do not count.

Substitute that value of the variable and evaluate the polynomial.
