LT 9.1.1: Identify polynomials and classify by degree and number of terms LT 9.1.2: Add and subtract polynomials

Vocabulary 1. monomial – examples: 2. polynomial – examples: 3. binomial – examples: 4. trinomial examples: 5. degree examples: 6. standard form -

Example 1. Is it a monomial? If so, find the degree. a. 10 b. x + 5 c. x -1 d. -1.8m5

e. 3x

f.

g. 4a

h. ½ ab2

Example 2. Write 7 + 2x4 – 4x in standard form. Identify the degree and leading coefficient of the polynomial. in standard form: leading coefficient:

Example 3. Tell whether the expression is a polynomial. If it is, find the degree and classify it by the number of terms.

Expression a. b. c. d. e. 9 2x2 + x – 5 6n4 – 8n n-2 – 3 7bc3 + 4b4c

Polynomial?

Classification

To add or subtract polynomials, ______________________________________________________. How do the exponents change?

Example 4. Find the sum. a. (4x3 + x2 – 5) + (7x + x3 – 3x2) b. (x2 + x + 8) + (x2 – x – 1)

Example 5. Find the difference. a. (4z2 – 3) – (-2z2 + 5z – 1) b. (3x2 + 6x – 4) – (x2 – x – 7)
