$-2q+7$ $linear$ $binomial$

Work Step by Step

In order to solve this problem, we need to put the equation in standard form, and name the polynomial. To put the equation in standard form, we must order the monomials within from highest to lowest. Since $-2q$ has a higher degree than $7$, it will go first. So the polynomial is already in standard form ($-2q+7$). Now we need to name the polynomial. It is linear because its highest degree is 1, and it is a binomial because it has two terms. Therefore, it is a linear binomial.
