# State whether the given algebraic expressions are polynomials? Justify.

i. y + 1/y

ii. 2-5√x

iii. x^{2} + 7x + 9

iv. 2m^{-2} + 7m – 5

v. 10

Answer :

(i) y + 1/y is not a polynomial because in this given equation the second term becomes 1 × y^{-1} where -1 is not a whole number. So the given algebraic expression is not a polynomial.

(ii) 2-5√x is not a polynomial because again the power of x is 1/2 which is not a whole number.

(iii) The given algebraic expression is a polynomial in one variable because all the powers of x are whole numbers.

(iv) This expression is not polynomial because the power of the first term is -2 which is not a whole number.

(v) The number 10 is a polynomial because 10 can be represented as follows: 10 × x^{0} which is equal to 10. So it is a polynomial.
