PRE-CALCULUS 11 Unit 1 – Day 1: POLYNOMIALS REVIEW POLYNOMIALS A monomial is a number, a variable, or a product of a number and variables. A monomial that is just a number is also called a constant . The number multiplied to the variables is called the coefficient . A polynomial is a monomial or a sum of monomials . Each monomial is called a term of the polynomial. A binomial is a polynomial with two terms. A trinomial is a polynomial with three terms. The degree of a monomial is the total number of variable factors in the monomial. It can be calculated by adding the exponents of the variable. example: What is the degree of 2 x 4 ? degree = 4 , 2 x 4 is a 4 th degree monomial. exercise: What is the degree of - 4 x 3 yz 2 ? exercise: What is the degree of 2 3 ? The degree of a polynomial is the largest of the degrees from the terms in the polynomial. exercise: What is the degree of 2 x 4 - 4 x 3 yz 2 + 8 ? Polynomials are usually written so that the terms are in descending order of degree . exercise: Write in descending order of degree 5 x + x 8 - 7 x 11 - x 5 + 3 Polynomials of degree 0 is just a constant. Polynomials of degree 1 are linear . Polynomials of degree 2 are quadratic .

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
