In mathematics, a

**polynomial**is an expression consisting of variables (also called indeterminates) and coefficients, that involves only the operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and**non**-negative integer exponents of variables. An example of a**polynomial**of a single indeterminate x is x^{2}− 4x + 7.Also to know is, what is an example of a non example?

**nonexample**. Noun. (plural nonexamples)

**Example**that is irrelevant to a rule or a definition already shown, used for a clearer explanation.

What makes a polynomial function?

A

**polynomial function**is a**function**such as a quadratic, a cubic, a quartic, and so on, involving only non-negative integer powers of x. We can give a general defintion of a**polynomial**, and define its degree.How do you classify a polynomial?

**Number of terms.**

- A monomial has just one term. For example, 4x
^{2}.Remember that a term contains both the variable(s) and its coefficient (the number in front of it.) - A binomial has two terms. For example: 5x
^{2}-4x. - A trinomial has three terms.
- Any polynomial with four or more terms is just called a polynomial.
