Ex. 2x²+x+6 A monomial would be like 2x², there's no addition or subtraction going on. Polynomials are anything from 2 terms on up, poly=many, not three. __________________ C2D E6600 | 4GB DDR2-800 | 9800GTX+ | Asus P5B-E | 150GB Raptor | 320GB 7200.10 | 750W Xigmatek PSU

Not fun, but a lot better than geometry proofs __________________ C2D E6600 | 4GB DDR2-800 | 9800GTX+ | Asus P5B-E | 150GB Raptor | 320GB 7200.10 | 750W Xigmatek PSU

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

I think I did good on the test today though. __________________ C2D E6600 | 4GB DDR2-800 | 9800GTX+ | Asus P5B-E | 150GB Raptor | 320GB 7200.10 | 750W Xigmatek PSU

2 terms is a binomial
