PolynomialEdit

A polynomial is a variable that has the general form

 

Here, the   literals represent any constant numbers.

MonomialEdit

Polynomials with highest degree as 1 are called Monomials. Monomial has the general form

 

Consider   as a monomial function of x.

 
x | y
-2 | -4
-1 | -1
0 | 0
1 | 1
2 | 2

General equation of a straight line with slope m = a through y intercept (0,b)

  •  

Equation of a straight line with slope m = 1 and passing through (0,0).

 
x | -2 -1 0 1 2
y | -2 -1 0 1 2

BinomialEdit

Polynomial of one variable has the general form
