Polynomials are fundamental mathematical expressions that play a crucial role in various fields of mathematics and science. A polynomial is a mathematical expression consisting of variables (usually denoted by letters like x, y, or z) raised to non-negative integer powers and combined with coefficients (usually constants) using addition and subtraction.


A polynomial is typically expressed as a sum of terms, where each term is a product of a coefficient and a variable (or variables) raised to a non-negative integer exponent.

Polynomials can be classified based on several different criteria, including their degree, number of terms, and special characteristics.

Adding polynomials is a straightforward process that involves combining like terms. To add two or more polynomials, 1. write down the polynomials, 2. Combine like terms, 3. Write the sum.

Subtracting polynomials is similar to adding them; you need to align like terms and then perform the subtraction for each set of like terms.

Multiplying polynomials involves applying the distributive property repeatedly to expand the product of two or more polynomials.

Dividing polynomials can be more involved than addition, subtraction, and multiplication. To divide one polynomial by another, you can use polynomial long division or synthetic division.

The “box method” is a visual approach used to multiply two polynomials, often referred to as the “box method for multiplying polynomials.” It’s a systematic way of organizing and simplifying the multiplication process, especially when dealing with polynomials that have multiple terms.
