 Question 205590: The question is: Classify the following polynomial by its degree and terms. x^2-5x+2. This is a multiple choice question. The choices are: quadratic binomial, cubic trinomial, quadratic trinomial, and linear binomial. So far what I have done is cancel out quadratic binomial and linear binomial because the equation has 3 terms(trinomial) and binomial stands for 2 terms. I don't know which one it is now , quadratic trinomial or cubic trinomial. Click here to see answer by Alan3354(30993)
