Can there be a polynomial with no degrees?
To review, a linear equation is a polynomial equation with either zero or one coefficients. That is, it is structured like
In this case, the coefficients a, b, and c are the dependent variables, whereas x and y are the independent ones.
For the first phrase, we multiply xx by yy. Since such is the case, we can eliminate the probability that this equation is linear.
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.
