Question | Answer |
---|---|

Base | The number that is used as a factor. Example: In 3², 3 is the base. |

Binomial | A polynomial with two terms. Example: 2x²+1. |

Coefficient | The number in front of the variable part of the monomial. Example: In 3X, 3 is the coefficient. |

Constant | Numbers with no variable. Example: 3, 20 or 1/2 |

Degree of a Polynomial | The largest exponent. Example: 2x⁴+3x²+2 degree= 4 |

Exponent | The superscripted number that tells how many times a base is used as a factor. Example: 2*2*2*2=2⁴ |

Like Terms | Terms that have the same variable, raised to the same exponent. Example. 2m⁴ and 3m⁴ are like terms. |

Monomial | 1 term example: 2x |

Order of Operations | PEMDAS Parentheses (), Exponents 2⁴, Multiplication * or Division 1/2, Addition+ or Subtraction - |

Polynomial in Simplest Form | A polynomial with no like terms ordered from highest exponent to lowest exponent. |
