# What is not a polynomial?

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 x2 − 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.
1. A monomial has just one term. For example, 4x2 .Remember that a term contains both the variable(s) and its coefficient (the number in front of it.)
2. A binomial has two terms. For example: 5x2 -4x.
3. A trinomial has three terms.
4. Any polynomial with four or more terms is just called a polynomial.
