In a polynomial, the number appearing all by itself without a variable is called the constant.
The degree of a polynomial is the largest degree of the terms. The degree of a term is the power of the variable, or if the term has more than one variable, it is the sum of the powers on each variable.
A monomial is a one-termed polynomial. It can be a constant, a variable, or a variable with a coefficient.
A polynomial is an expression with at least one algebraic term, but which does not indicate division by a variable or contain variables with fractional exponents.
standard form of a polynomial
Arrangement of terms in a polynomial where the term with the highest degree is first and is followed by the other terms in order of decreasing powers.
A polynomial function is a function defined by an expression with at least one algebraic term.
