You have already learned about the polynomials in the previous article. Now we are going to learn the types of polynomials.

**What are the types of polynomials?**

The following are the types of polynomials on the basis of the number of terms they are containing.

**Monomial **

The polynomial with only one term is called a **monomial**. A number or a product of a number and a variable.

**Example:**

3x^{2}

**Binomial**

The polynomial with the two-term is called **binomial**. Two monomials are connected by + or –

**Example:**

3x2 + 4x

**Trinomial**

The polynomial with three-term is called **trinomial**. Three monomials are connected by + or –

**Example:**

4x3 + 3x2 + 2x

**Constant polynomial**

The polynomial containing only the constant term is a **constant** polynomial.

**Example:**

25, -30

**Types on the basis of the degree of polynomials**

**Linear polynomial**

A polynomial of the degree one is called as **linear** polynomial

**Example:**

4x-1

**Quadratic Polynomial**

A polynomial of degree two is called **Quadratic** polynomial.

**Example:**

5x2-4x+2

**Cubic Polynomial**

A polynomial of degree three is called a **cubic** polynomial.

**Example:**

3x3+4x2+5x+6
