In this section, we review some basics about polynomials, along with adding and subtracting polynomials. When we add or subtract polynomials, we must
revisit the definition of a like term. A term is a number, variable, or the product of a number and one or more variables raised to powers. Like terms
are two or more terms that have the exact same variable or variables, raised to the exact same power or powers. We add and subtract polynomials by
combining like terms. This process is just an extension of the distributive property. We will also cover some of the basic definitions regarding
polynomials. A monomial is single term polynomial, where as a binomial is a two term polynomial, and a trinomial is a three term polynomial. When
we write a polynomial, we typically want to use standard form. We write a polynomial in one variable in standard form by placing the terms in
descending order of powers. This means the term in which the variable has the highest exponential power goes to the first position on the left,
followed by the next largest, and so on and so forth.
