 # Types of Polynomials

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:

3x2

###### 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`

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`
