Study Notes
Classifying Polynomials
 Monomial: An expression consisting of a single term.
 Binomial: An expression containing two distinct terms.
 Trinomial: An expression made up of three individual terms.
 Polynomial: Comprises one or more monomials, can be expressed as their sum or difference.
 Constant: A polynomial with a degree of zero; it is a single numerical value.
 Linear Polynomial: Defined by a degree of 1, indicated by a linear equation.
 Quadratic Polynomial: Resides at degree 2, typically taking the form of a parabola.
 Cubic Polynomial: Represents degree 3, often featuring inflection points in its graph.
 Quartic Polynomial: Identified by a degree of 4, it can have up to four roots.
 Quintic Polynomial: Denotes degree 5, can exhibit complex behaviors in graphs.
 Nth Degree Polynomial: Any polynomial with a degree higher than 5; classified based on its highest degree term.
 Degree of a Monomial: Obtained by summing the exponents of all variables present.
 Degree of a Polynomial: Identified by the term with the highest degree within the polynomial.
 Leading Coefficient: The coefficient associated with the polynomial's first term when in standard form.
 Standard Form of a Polynomial: A conventional arrangement that lists terms in descending order of degree.

Examples:
 Monomial: 5a³b²c with a degree of 6 (3+2+1).
 Quadratic Binomial: 4x  2x² with degree 2.
 Cubic Trinomial: 5a³  4a  6 with degree 3.
 Quintic Polynomial: 4x²  3x + 2x⁵  7 + 3x³ with a degree of 5.
 Quartic Monomial: 12m²n² with a degree of 4.
 Constant: The number 12 is a polynomial of degree zero.
 Example Linear Monomial: 4x, characterized by a degree of 1.
