# How do you determine if #5n^3+nq^3# is a polynomial and if so, how do you identify if it is a monomial, binomial, or trinomial?

##### 1 Answer

It is a binomial.

#### Explanation:

Let us first consider a term. A term is a product of one or more variables along with a constant, say of the type

Observe that variables are multiplied **but not addedor subtracted**.

Such an expression with a single term is called a **monomial**.

However, when two or more terms are added they are called binomial, trinomial or polynomial depending on number of terms.

An expression with two terms is called a binomial e.g.

an expression with three terms is called a trinomial such as

and an expression with more than three terms is called a polynomial.

Hence,
