Question 2

Classify the following polynomials as monomials, binomials, trinomials. Which polynomials do not fit in any of these three categories?

x + y, 1000, x + x2 + x3 + x4, 7 + y + 5x, 2y − 3y2, 2y − 3y2 + 4y3, 5x − 4y + 3xy, 4z − 15z2, ab + bc + cd + da, pqr, p2q + pq2, 2p + 2q

Sol :

The given expressions are classified as

Monomials: 1000, pqr
