Ex 2.1 | Question 5

## Text Solution

Reasoning:

A polynomial of degree one is called a linear polynomial.

A polynomial of degree two is called a quadratic polynomial.

A polynomial of degree three is called a cubic polynomial.

Steps:

(i) \begin{align}x^{2}+x \rightarrow\end{align} Quadratic polynomial since the degree is $$2.$$

(ii) \begin{align}x-x^{3} \rightarrow\end{align} Cubic polynomial since the degree is $$3.$$

(iii) \begin{align}y+y^{2}+4 \rightarrow\end{align} Quadratic polynomial since the degree is $$2.$$

(iv)\begin{align}1+x \rightarrow\end{align} Linear polynomial since the degree is $$1.$$

(v) \begin{align}3 t \rightarrow\end{align} Liner polynomial since the degree is $$1.$$

(vi) \begin{align}r^{2} \rightarrow\end{align} Quadratic polynomial since the degree is $$2.$$

(vii) \begin{align}7 x^{3} \rightarrow\end{align}  Cubic polynomial since the degree is $$3.$$
