A polynomial can have any number of terms (“poly”means “many”). We have special names forpolynomials that have one, two, or three terms:MonomialA monomial has one term (“mono” means “one”). The following are monomials:x3x42x3BinomialA binomial has two terms:x+ 15x23xTrinomialA trinomial has three terms:x4+ 2x33x2x24x+ 1Degree of a TermThedegreeof an individual term in a polynomial is the sum of powers of all the variables in that term.
