Quintinomial

A polynomial with two terms is called a binomial.

Factoring a polynomial with 5 or more terms is very hard and in general impossible using only algebraic numbers. The best strategy here is to guess some 'obvious' solutions and reduce to a fourth or lower order polynomial.

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.

The degree of the polynomial.

The degree of a polynomial is the highest degree of its terms. The degree of a term is the sum of the exponents of the variables that appear in it.For example, the polynomial 8x2y3 + 5x - 10 has three terms. The first term has a degree of 5, the second term has a degree of 1, and the last term has a degree of 0. Therefore, the polynomial is degree five.

The terms in a polynomial are seperated by a + or - So in given polynomial there are 4 terms.... abc , e, fg and h²

A trinomial is a polynomial. All trinomials are polynomials but the opposite is not true. a trinomial= three unlike terms. a polynomial= "many" unlike terms.

The only difference is that a binomial has two terms and a polynomial has three or more terms.

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.
