I'm going to assume the polynomial in question is 2x7+(3-2x3)+(5x8-4x)

Expanding out the polynomial:


Order the terms by powers of x:


Since 8 is the highest power of x, the degree of the polynomial is 8.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

Can two third-degree polynomials be added to produce a second-degree polynomial?

Yes. If the coefficient of the third degree terms in one polynomial are the additive inverses (minus numbers) of the coefficient of the corresponding terms in the second polynomial. Eg: 3x3 + 2x2 + 5 and -3x3 + x - 7 add to give 2x2 + x - 2

What is a degree of a real polynomial?

The degree is the highest power of the variable. For example, x5 + 3x3 - x + 4 is of degree 5, since the highest power of "x" is 5.

Which kind of polynomial is this 3x3 plus x plus 1?

I really want to see x^3 to represent x to the power of 3 and x3 to represent the third element of the sequence (xn). Because in Calculus, we use x3, a5, etc. all the time. Anyway 3x^3 + x + 1 is a degree 3 (highest degree in the poly.) polynomial.

What is the difference between a term and a polynomial?

A term only has variables and constants multiplied among themselves (or, in some cases, divided), such as 5xy, or -3x3. A polynomial is the sum of several such terms.
