Degree of a Polynomial:

The degree of a polynomial is defined as the highest degree of a monomial within a polynomial. Thus, a polynomial equation having one variable which has the largest exponent is called a degree of the polynomial.

A polynomial is defined as an expression which contains two or more algebraic terms. It is made up of two terms, namely Poly (meaning “many”) and Nominal (meaning “terms.”). Polynomials are composed of:

Constants. Example: 1, 2, 3, etc.

Variables. Example: g, h, x, y, etc.

Exponents: Example: 5 in x5 etc.

Linear equation: an equation between two variables that gives a straight line when plotted on a graph is called linear equation.

Given;

\[2x+1+2=0\]

It is a linear equation in which no. of variables is 1 and no, of constants is 2.

Formula of linear equation, when one variable is given is \[Ax+B+C=0\]

Formula of linear equation, when two variables are given is \[Ax+By+C=0\]
