RS Aggarwal Solutions for Class 10 Maths Chapter 2 Polynomials

In mathematics, a polynomial is an expression consisting of variables and coefficients, which involves only the operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and non-negative integer exponentiation of variables. The word polynomial is derived from the Greek words ‘poly’ means ‘many’ and ‘nominal’ means ‘terms’, so altogether it said “many terms”. An example of a polynomial of a single indeterminate x is x² - 4x + 7. Variables are also sometimes called indeterminates. The chapter has related concepts including the value of a polynomial at a point, Zeros of a polynomial, its general form and so on. A polynomial is said to be linear, quadratic, cubic, and biquadratic as its degree is 1, 2, 3 and 4 respectively.
