11 L2 Polynomials in One Variable; Factoring An expression of the form k k ax where k is a whole number and k a is a constant, is called a monomial . A sum of monomials forms a polynomial where each monomial is called a term . Polynomial in Standard Form : 1 11 0 ... nn a x ax a + ++ + , where 0 , ,..., , aa a a are coefficients , and 0 n is an integer. If 0 n a , then n degree , n a leading coefficient , n n leading term .
