Is this a quadratic or linear function? Identify the quadratic,linear, and constant terms
3(x2)^2+12x

If you have an x^2 term in the function, it is quadratic.
Once you have simplified the function, the numerical value for x^2 is quadratic, the numerical value for x is linear, and other numbers are constants.
(x2)^2 = x^2  4x + 4
3x^2  12x + 12 + 12x = 3x^2 + 12
I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
