### vocabulary with examples

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.
Product of Power Rule To multiply powers having the same base, add the exponent. Example: 3⁴*3⁴=3⁸
Term Terms are separated by a + or - sign Example: 2x+3y-4z has 3 terms
Trinomial A polynomial with 3 terms. example: 2x⁸+3x-1
