Chapter R: Basic Algebraic Concepts R.1: Exponents and P olynomials 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. is a polynomial. It is a monomial since it has one term. It has degree 11 since 11 is the highest exponent. 14. is a polynomial. It is a binomial since it has two terms. It has degree 12 since 12 is the highest exponent. 15. is a polynomial. It is a binomial since it has two terms. It has degree 6 since 6 is the sum of the exponents in the term (The term has degree 2.) 16. is a polynomial. It is a trinomial since it has three terms. It has degree 6 since 6 is the highest exponent. 17. is a polynomial. It is a binomial since it has two terms. It has degree 6 since 6 is the highest exponent. 18. is a polynomial. It is a binomial since it has two terms. It has degree 7 since 7 is the sum of the exponents in the term (The other term has degree 5.) 19. is a polynomial. It is a trinomial since it has three terms. It has degree 6 since 6 is the sum of the exponents in the term (The other terms have degree 4.) 20. is not a polynomial since positive exponents in the denominator are equivalent to negative exponents in the numerator. 21. is not a polynomial since the exponents are not integers. 22. 23. 1 4 m 3 2 3 m 2 1 5 2 1 1 ] 3 m 3 2 m 2 1 5 2 5 1 4 m 3 2 3 m 3 2 1 1 ] 3 m 2 2 m 2 2 1 1 5 1 5 2 5 m 3 2 4 m 2 1 10 1 3 x 2 2 4 x 1 5 2 1 1 ] 2 x 2 1 3 x 2 2 2 5 1 3 x 2 2 2 x 2 2 1 1 ] 4 x 1 3 x 2 1 1 5 2 2 2 5 x 2 2 x 1 3 ] 5 1 z 1 2 2 z 3 2 5 2 z 5 5] 5 z 1 > 2 1 2 z 3 > 2 2 5 z 5 > 2 5 p 1 2 p 2 1 5 p 3 ] 3 5 r 4 s 2 . 1 3 r 2 s 2 2 3 5 r 4 s 2 1 rs 3 ] 1 7 m 5 n 2 . ] 1 7 m 5 n 2 1 2 1 3 m 3 n 2 1 2 x 2 1 1 3 x 6 2 a 6 1 5 a 2 1 4 a 6 pq 18 p 5 q . 18 p 5 q 1 6 pq 9 y 12 1 y 2 ] 5 x 11 a r 8 s 2 b 3 5 r 8 ? 3 s 2 ? 3 5 r 24 s 6 ] a p 4 q b 2 5] a p 4 ? 2 q 2 b 5] p 8 q 2 1 ] 4 m 3 n 9 2 2 5 1 ] 4 2 2 1 m 3 2 2 1 n 9 2 2 5 4 2 m 6 n 18 or 16 m 6 n 18 1 2 x 5 y 4 2 3 5 2 3 1 x 5 2 3 1 y 4 2 3 5 2 3 x 15 y 12 or 8 x 15 y 12 1 6 4 2 3 5 6 4 ? 3 5 6 12 1 2 2 2 5 5 2 2 ? 5 5 2 10 1 ] 4 z 2 0 5 1, if z Þ 0 1 5 m 2 0 5 1, if m Þ 0 ] 2 0 5] 1 1 2 5] 1 2 0 5 1 1 ] 5 2 2 ? 1 ] 5 2 6 5 1 ] 5 2 2 1 6 5 1 ] 5 2 8 1 ] 4 2 3 ? 1 ] 4 2 2 5 1 ] 4 2 3 1 2 5 1 ] 4 2 5
