A polynomial is a combination of terms separated using + or – signs. Polynomials cannot contain any of the following:
1. Variables raised to a negative or fractional exponent. (2x-2,x12,…).
2. Variables in the denominator. (1x,1×2,…).
3. Variables under a radical. (x,x3,…).
4. Special features. (trig functions, absolute values, logarithms, …).
Simplify the expression.
Simplify each term.
