# Chapter 1 - Section 1.3 - Algebraic Expressions - 1.3 Exercises: 12

Type: monomial Terms: $\frac{1}{2}$$x^7 Degree: 7 #### Work Step by Step The type of the polynomial is a monomial if it has one term, a binomial if it has two terms, and a trinomial if it has three terms. This polynomial has 1 term, therefore it is a monomial. The terms are simply the values separated by plus and minus signs: \frac{1}{2}$$x^7$. 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 7.
