## Polynomials and Polynomial

Functions
Identify term, constant, polynomial, monomial, binomial,
trinomial, and the degree of a term and of a polynomial.
Define polynomial functions
Review combining like terms.
Subtract polynomials
Recognize the graph of a polynomial function from the
degree of the polynomial.

Term
A TERM is a number or the product of a number and
one or more variables raised to powers.
Ex:
Coefficient is the numerical factor of the term
Ex: -12

Slide 5- 2

a number

x, y

## Monomial: An expression that is a constant, a

variable, or a product of a constant and
variable(s) that are raised to whole number
powers.
Multiply a
number and a
variable

## Exponent cant be negative!

Exponent cant have fractions!

## Coefficient of a monomial: The numerical

factor in a monomial.
Degree of a monomial: The sum of the
exponents of all variables in a monomial.

Identify Polynomials
A Polynomial is a finite sum of terms in which all
variables are raised to nonnegative integer powers
and no variables appear in any denominator

## Polynomial: A monomial or an expression that

can be written as a sum of monomials.
Examples: 4x, 4x + 8,

2x2 - 5xy + 8y

## Polynomial in one variable: A polynomial in

which every variable term has the same
variable.
Example: x2 5x + 2

## Trinomial: A polynomial containing three terms.

Degree of a polynomial: The greatest degree of
any of the terms in the polynomial.

## Writing a Polynomial in Descending Order of Degree

Place the highest degree term first, then the next
highest degree, and so on.

## Write the polynomial in descending order.

2 x 5 7 x 2 x3 4 x 4

4 x 4 x 3 7x 2 2x 5

## Objective 2: Define Polynomial

Functions
You can use function notation to represent
polynomials.
EX: P ( x) 3 x 2 2 x 5

## This function is called a polynomial function because

the expression is a polynomial.

Cont.
EX: P(3), substitute 3 for every variable x.

Slide 5- 15

## Objective 3: Review combining like

terms
Terms that are considered to be like terms if they
contain exactly the same variables raised to exactly
the same powers.
Like Terms

Unlike Terms

Slide 5- 16

## Combine like terms and write the resulting polynomial

in descending order of degree.

8 x 3 6 x 2 2x 4

6 a5 2a 2b 3b 1 3a5 3b a 2b
2a 5 3a 2 b 5

To add polynomials, remove the parentheses and
group like terms.

## Objective 5: Subtracting Polynomials

The definition of subtraction of real numbers can be
extended to apply to polynomials. To subtract a

Ex: a b = a + (- b)
Ex: (4x + 2) (3x 3 ) = (4x + 2) + (-3x + 3)
**To subtract a polynomial, add its opposite. Or
DISTRIBUTE the negative.**
