Example: 2 3 x , y x 3 5 , x 2 ! , 7 ! , and 5 4 3 y z . * A polynomial is a term or a finite sum of terms in which all variables have whole number exponents and no variables appear in denominators. Example: 2 2 3 4 1 x xy ! + . * Adding polynomials is simply combining like terms together. * Subtracting polynomials is simply adding the first polynomial and the negative of the second polynomial. 1. For each polynomial function, find
