**6.1 Operations with Polynomials**

A *monomial* is a real number, a variable, or the product of a real number and one or more variables with whole number exponents. A monomial will not include addition or subtraction. A *binomial* is the sum or difference of two monomials, while a *trinomial* is the sum or difference of three monomials. A *polynomial* is a general term that describes a monomial or the sum or difference of two or more monomials.
