Polynomials Identify Monomials and their Degree
Identify Polynomials and their Degree Adding, Subtracting, Multiplying, and Dividing Polynomial Expressions

The degree of a monomial is the sum of the exponents of the variables.
A monomial is the product of a constant times a variable raised to a nonnegative integer power. The degree of a monomial is the sum of the exponents of the variables. A polynomial is a monomial or the sum of monomials. The degree of a polynomial is the monomial with the highest degree.

Variables with negative exponents
Polynomials cannot have the following: Variables with negative exponents Variable exponents Variables under the radical sign

State the coefficient and the degree of each polynomial

Change (-) to (+) of the opposite Use the Distributive Property Combine all like terms Write your answer in standard form

Simplify Each Expression

Multiplying Polynomials
Follow all rules for exponents FOIL Method for multiplying binomials Use Distributive Property for all others Use special products when applicable Combine all like terms Write your answer in standard form

Rule: Square 2x the product

Squaring A Trinomial Square each term and 2x each product

Perform the indicated operation below and express as a single polynomial

Perform the indicated operation below and express as a single polynomial

Perform the indicated operation below and express as a single polynomial

Monomial Division Divide each term by the Monomial

Polynomial Division List all of the terms with their powers in descending order Replace any missing terms with a zero Divide the polynomial until the degree of the divisor is greater than the degree of the remainder Write the remainder over the divisor

Perform the indicated operation below

Synthetic Division List all of the terms with their powers in descending order Replace missing terms with a coefficient of 0 List all of the coefficients in descending order Set the divisor equal to zero and solve Write your final answer using the coefficients as one power less than the original polynomial Write the remainder over the divisor

Perform the indicated operation below
