What can polynomials not have in the exponents?
Polynomials can not have a exponent of negative.
How do you add/subtract polynomials?
By adding or subtracting the terms that both have a the same variable and have the same exponent. Ex. 2x^2+ and 4x^2 can be put together because they both have the same variable which is x and both have the exponent of two.
What can polynomials not have in the denominator?
Variables in the denominator of a term.
If you have an equation like this 2(2x^2+3x+21) what property do you have to use to start to simplify this equation?
You have to use distributive property.
What can polynomials not contain in the terms
They cannot contain an infinite number of terms.
When you have (2x+4)(x-5) what method can you use to answer this question?
The F.O.I.L Method and the Box Method.
What does the F.O.I.L Method stand for?
First, Outer, Inner, and Last.
If you want to use the Box Method what are the steps?
Set up box, fill in box, and then simplify.
How do you find the highest degree in a polynomial?
It is the highest exponent in the equation. Ex. 2x^2-4x^3+x^4, the highest degree for this equation would be 4 because the biggest exponent is 4.
