Firstly, polynomial is an expression in which the terms are monomials and there cant be a variable in the denominator. If it were, the expression wouldn't be a polynomial. Its important to know what the degree of a polynomial is, and what a leading coefficient is. A function with a polynomial on its right side is called a polynomial function. This function can be evaluated for both numerical values and algebraic expressions. And a zero on a polynomial function is a point at which the graph of a function intersects the x-axis. Also, you'll learn about the end behavior of the graph of the function and see how its degree affects the graph.
*These practice questions are only helpful when you work on them offline on a piece of paper and then use the solution steps function to check your answer.
