What is the meaning of constant term?

more A fixed value. In Algebra, a constant is a number on its own, or sometimes a letter such as a, b or c to stand for a fixed number. Example: in "x + 5 = 9", 5 and 9 are constants. If it is not a constant it is called a variable.

Also question is, is a constant considered a polynomial?

Constant polynomials are also called degree 0 polynomials. The graph of a constant polynomial is a horizontal line. A constant poly- nomial does not have any roots unless it is the polynomial p(x) = 0. are linear polynomials.

Is a polynomial of degree zero is a constant term?

Like any constant value, the value 0 can be considered as a (constant) polynomial, called the zero polynomial. It has no nonzero terms, and so, strictly speaking, it has no degree either. As such, its degree is undefined.

How many terms are in the polynomial?

Polynomials are classified according to their number of terms. 4x3 +3y + 3x2 has three terms, -12zy has 1 term, and 15 - x2 has two terms. As already mentioned, a polynomial with 1 term is a monomial. A polynomial with two terms is a binomial, and a polynomial with three terms is a trinomial.
