Hi!
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! ^^

Sam,
That was a great explanation. I just tried to figure this out and was lost. Love the straight simple talk.
Thank you
