My name is Jason... today I have 2 problems for you both having to deal with Algebra.

My questions are :::

Question 1 ::

Direction: Find the degree of the polynomial.

Problem: - 1 + 8 x ^ 4 - x ^ 2

(negative 1 plus 8x squared minus x squared)

Question 2 ::

Classify 1 6 + 5 e ^ 3 and state its degree.

(16 plus 5e cubed)

Thank You for spending some of your time to help.

Jason.

problem 1) degree is 4

since the highest value that x is raised to is 4

problem 2)

degree is 3 since e is raised to the 3rd degree

HI! thanks for replying, although... can you explain something? how do you tell if something is a binomial, trinomial, monomial, or a polynomial?

A polynomial with one term is called a monomial, two terms a binomial, and three terms a trinomial

polynomial = describes something built from monomials. A sum of 1 or more monomial terms.

ex.

trinomial= 3x + 5y + 8n

binomial= a+b

monomial= a

Remember, the trinomial and binomial

are made up of monomials. Specifically the trinomial has 3 monomials and the binomial has 2 monomials.

Hope it helps =)

THANK YOU SO MUCH! ^^

Your Welcome =D
