Type: monomial Terms: -8 Degree: 0
Work Step by Step
The type of the polynomial is a monomial if it has one term, a binomial if it has two terms, and a trinomial if it has three terms. This polynomial has 1 term, therefore it is a monomial. The terms are simply the values separated by plus and minus signs: -8. The degree is just the highest exponent of the variable in any of the terms, and if no x is present, the degree is 0. Therefore, the degree of this polynomial is 0.
