the highest exponent of quadratic equation is 2 good luck on NovaNet peoples

you CAN have a variable as an exponent.For example, look at the equation 2x =4. We know x=2

When it has no squares (exponent of 2).If an equation of one variable can be rearranged into a polynomial a*x^2 + b*x + c = 0, where x is the variable, and [a,b, & c] are constants and a does not equal zero, then it is a quadratic equation.If it has more than one variable, or higher powers of the variable x, then it is not a quadratic equation. See related link.

A quadratic equation is an equation where the highest exponent on the variable is 2. For example, the equation, y=2x2+3x-2 is a quadratic equation. The equation y=2x is not quadratic because the highest exponent on x is 1. (If there is no exponent on an x, then the exponent is 1.) The equation, y=x3+3x2-2 is not quadratic because the highest exponent is three. On a graph, a quadratic equation looks like a U or and upside down U. Here are some more example of quadratic equations: y=x2 y=3x2+2x-3 y=x2+5

A linear equation is that equation in which a variable or variables has exponent equal to 1. For example, standard form of linear equation in one variable: a1x + a2x +.......+ anx = c Standard form of a linear equation : a1x + a2x +.........+ anx = c e.g. 4x + 3 =6, 3x + 6y + 5z = 2 etc.

The term coefficient refers to a number that is next to a variable. For example in the term 4x2, 4 is a coefficient, and 2 is an exponent; x is a variable.

A monomial is an expression made up of a co-efficient, a variable , and an exponent that has only one term. Monomial = 4x ^2 4= co-efficient x=variable 2= exponent.

No. An expression can have a variable exponent (for instance, 2 to the power x, or x to the power y), but that is no longer a polynomial.

The exponent is an unknown variable. It is a variable because it will change into a known number when we get further into the equation. Take this for example. 4x=8 - where x is the exponent. To work out the problem we simply move the 4 over the equal's sign. Since it is 4x, this means that it is 4 times x. Since we are moving the 4 over the equals sign, we have to change the multiplication, into a division. x=8/4 which equals 2. The x is a 2. To check, we we substitute the 2 with the x in the equation. 4x2=8, which is correct.

Yes. If we don't see an exponent, the exponent is understood to be one. Just like if we don't see a sign, the sign is assumed to be positive. This in no way constricts or limits the variable. The variable can still be anything at all. But assumptions like this are part of mathematics. How tedious would it be to have to write "x1" for each x? In any case, x1 = x so it is almost pointless.Yes, because if the variable (hypothetically speaking) is 1 (and it can be any number in the world, but 1 is an example), and the exponent (power) is 1, there is only one number to multiply, therefore, the number can only be by itself. If it is squared (to the second power) then you multiply the variable against itself (in this case, 1 X 1), but if the variable doesn't have an exponent, it is assumed to be to the power of one. Take the number 2, for example. If 2 is the variable, x, and x is alone, and you multiply how big the number is of the exponent, and because there is none, it is to the first power.X squared looks like this: x X xX (a.k.a. x to the first power) looks like this: xIf there is no exponent, you only multiply what is there, which there is only one variable, so it is assumed to be to the first power. If it were squared, or to the second power as demonstrated above, you would multiply x by itself. If you count the variables in the equation, x squared has two x's, while x alone has only one x in the equation. Because there is only one x, and the exponent represents how many of that number (in this case, x) you multiply by itself, x is assumed to be to the first power, or to the power of one.

When you take the square root of a variable raised to an exponent, you divide the exponent by two. For example the square root of x^4 is x^2, because x^2 x x^2 =x^4.
