## Identify monomials
A
Monomial is an algebraic expression containing only one term. For example:3xy^{2}
- A monomial can be a constant number or a variable expression.
- A monomial should not have negative and fractional exponents.
- Monomials cannot include addition or subtraction.
Is 3m
^{2} a monomial?
A monomial is a number, a variable, or a product of numbers and variables.3m ^{2} is the product of a number and variables. It does not include addition. So, 3m^{2} is a monomial.
Is 3x
^{2}+1 a monomial?
A monomial is a number, a variable, or a product of numbers and variables.Monomials cannot include addition or subtraction. 3x ^{2}+1 is the sum of two monomials. So, 3x^{2}+1 is not a monomial. |
