are called the coefficients for


n Is called the degree of the polynomial


When all are zero, It Is called zero polynomial


A constant polynomial Is the polynomial with zero degree It Is a constant value polynomial


A polynomial of one Item Is called monomial, two Items binomial and three Items as trinomial


A polynomial of one degree Is called linear polynomial, two degree as quadratic polynomial and degree three as cubic polynomial

Zero’s or roots of the polynomial

It is a solution to the polynomial equation S(x) =0 i.e. a number “a” is said to be a zero of a polynomial if S (a) = 0.

If we draw the graph of S(x) =0, the values where the curve cuts the X-axis are called Zeros of the polynomial

Remainder Theorem’s

If p(x) is an polynomial of degree greater than or equal to 1 and p(x) is divided by the expression (x-a), then the remainder will be p(a)

Factor’s Theorem’s

If x-a is a factor of polynomial p(x) then p(a)=0 or if p(a)=0,x-a is the factor the polynomial p(x)
