Default How do?

How do you determine whether a expression is a polynomial?

Polynomial means there are multiple powers added or subtracted.
Ex. 2x+x+6

A monomial would be like 2x, there's no addition or subtraction going on.

Polynomials are anything from 2 terms on up, poly=many, not three.

Heh, yeah, we did that in math for like the past 2 years in a row. Not fun, but a lot better than geometry proofs

I didn't like proofs that much, now were doing Trig Identities now...

The only thing I don't like about proofs really is that the homework takes forever. I think I did good on the test today though.

I have how geometry is "math" don't you? It's logic, hardly any math at all.

Right now I'm in Calculus and it's FUN! I got an A- on the midterm though, so yay.

2 terms is a binomial
