**Types Of Polynomials**

**(i) Based on degree :**

If degree of polynomial is

Examples | |||

1. | One | Linear | x + 3, y – x + 2, √3x –3 |

2. | Two | Quadratic | 2x^{2} –7, , x^{2} +1+ 3y |

3. | Three | Cubic | x^{3} + 3x^{2} –7x+8, 2x^{2}+5x^{3}+7, |

4. | Four | bi-quadratic | x^{4} + y^{4} + 2x^{2}y^{2}, x^{4} + 3,… |

**(ii) Based on Terms :**

If number of terms in polynomial is

| Examples | ||

1. | One | Monomial | 7x, 5x^{9}, 3x^{16}, xy, …… |

2. | Two | Binomial | 2 + 7y^{6}, y^{3} + x^{14}, 7 + 5x^{9},… |

3. | Three | Trinomial | x^{3} –2x + y, x^{31}+y^{32}+ z^{33},….. |

**Note:**

(1) Degree of constant polynomials (Ex.5, 7, –3, 8/5, …) is zero.

(2) Degree of zero polynomial (zero = 0 = zero polynomial) is not defined.
