A square has sides of length 3x  2 cm. Express the area of the square as a polynomial.
would i write this as
3x2cm^4 because there are foru sides
sorry post went before i was done
polynominial confuse me
after thinking about what polynomial is suppose to represent one or more summed terms, i am assuming the 3x and the 2cm are the summed terms if i am not getting the understanding right please tell me
polynomial simply means "many or several numbers", poly is Greek for many
one side is 3x2
the area of a square is (side)x(side) or (side)^2
so all they want is (3x2)^2

for polynominial complete the following table 8x^4+5x^37x^2+4x1
