To find the degree of a polynomial expression, look at each of the terms to find the one with the most exponents, counting by power rather than by constant. The number of polynomials in the term with the most is the degr... More »

A polynomial function is any function that contains more than one monomial, with non-negative exponents, and only contains addition, subtraction, multiplication or division operations. A monomial is a single term consist... More »

A monic polynomial is a mathematical expression that consists of coefficients and a single variable, with the leading coefficient equal to one. The leading coefficient is found in the term that contains the variable with... More »

The leading coefficient is the number that multiplies a variable to the highest degree in the expression. Because polynomials are arranged by degree from highest to lowest, the leading coefficient is the first number tha... More »

Because a negative exponent turns the base into its reciprocal, a simple method for dividing negative exponents is letting the negative cancel and multiplying by the positive exponential expression. Regents Prep notes th... More »
