Because the exponent of the variable must be a whole number, monomials and

**polynomials**cannot have a variable in the denominator.**Polynomials**can be classified by the degree of the**polynomial**. The degree of a**polynomial**is the degree of its highest degree term.

Considering this, what makes something a polynomial?

In mathematics, a **polynomial** is an expression consisting of variables (also called indeterminates) and coefficients, that involves only the operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and non-negative integer exponents of variables. An example of a **polynomial** of a single indeterminate, x, is x^{2} − 4x + 7.

**Types of Polynomials**are Monomial, Binomial, Trinomial. Monomial is the

**polynomial**with one term, Binomial is the

**polynomial**with two unlike terms, and Trinomial is the

**polynomial**with three, unlike terms.

Likewise, what is the degree of polynomial √ 3?

**√3** is a **polynomial** of **degree** is 0.. **√3** is a **polynomial** of **degree** 0. Because it can be expressed as **√3**(x^0).

**Pi** (π) is not considered as a **polynomial**. It is a value referring to the circumference of a circle. On the other hand, **polynomial** refers to an equation containing four variables or more.
