Types Of Polynomials

       
           

Types of Polynomials on the basis of number of its terms :
Monomial: A polynomial containing only one non-zero term is called a monomial.
Binomial:  A polynomial containing two non-zero terms is called a binomial.
Trinomial:  A polynomial containing three non-zero terms is called a trinomial
A monomial containing a constant only is called a constant polynomial. A monomial containing its term as zero only is called a zero polynomial.
 
Types of Polynomials on the basis of its degree:
Linear Polynomial:  A polynomial of degree 1 is called a linear polynomial.
Quadratic Polynomial:  A polynomial of degree 2 is called a quadratic polynomial.
Cubic Polynomial:  A polynomial of degree 3 is called a cubic polynomial.
Bi-quadratic Polynomial:  A polynomial of degree 4 is called a biquadratic   polynomial.
