### Question:

Can there be a polynomial with no degrees?

### Answer:

Step 1

To review, a linear equation is a polynomial equation with either zero or one coefficients. That is, it is structured like

Ax+by+c=0

In this case, the coefficients a, b, and c are the dependent variables, whereas x and y are the independent ones.

Step 2

For the first phrase, we multiply xx by yy. Since such is the case, we can eliminate the probability that this equation is linear.

4xy+2y=9

Result

No

As you may know, a linear expression is a polynomial of degree 1. To determine the degree of a polynomial, check to see if the coefficient of a particular x-power is nonzero. As is customary, a polynomial is written with the x-powers decreasing. Polynomials of degree 1 are called linear. The degree of the polynomial is the greatest degree of any monomial in it whose coefficients are not zero.
