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.
Rewrite using the commutative property of multiplication.
Multiply x2 by x5 by adding the exponents.
Use the power rule aman=am+n to combine exponents.
Add 2 and 5.
Multiply 4 by 5.
Determine if the expression breaks any of the rules.
Does not break any of the rules
Determine if the expression is a polynomial.
Determine if a Polynomial (4x^2)(5x^5)
