It is simply an equation that has two operations. There is no special name for such equations. There are a huge number of equations with two or more operations and their solutions may well depend on which two (or more) operations it contains. Naming them does not really help in that respect.

For example, y = 3*x + 4, which involves multiplication and addition is called a linear equation, but y = exp(cos(x)) which involves the trigonometric function cosine, and raising Euler's number, e, to that power does not have a name.

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
