## Types of Polynomials

The various types of polynomials are as follows: Constant Polynomials The polynomials which do not have any variables but have only constants are called constant polynomials. Every number that can be represented in the number line is a constant polynomial. Some examples of constant polynomials are: etc. However, the number is called zero polynomial. Linear … Read more

## Terms, Factors and coefficient of a Polynomial

Terms of a Polynomial The terms of a polynomial are the parts of the polynomial that are separated by either additive (+) or subtractive (-) signs. To understand the terms of a polynomial, let us take an example: Here, x2 is the first term of the polynomial. Similarly, 2x and 4 are the 2nd and … Read more

## Polynomials

Definition of Polynomials The Polynomials may be defined as the Algebraic Expressions in which the Exponent or Power of all the variables present in the expression is a Whole Number. If the Exponent or Power of any variable is a Fraction or Negative, then, the Algebraic expression can not be considered as a polynomial. Symbol … Read more
