Which of the below correctly describes the expression seven π to the fourth power π? A) A binomial, B) a monomial, or C) a trinomial.

A monomial has one algebraic term, such as five π₯ squared π¦. A binomial has two algebraic terms, such as five π₯ squared π¦ plus π¦ cubed π. And a trinomial has three algebraic terms, such as five π₯ squared π¦ plus π¦ cubed π minus π.

Mono means one, bi means two, and tri means three. Thatβs how we know how many algebraic terms there are. So again, the monomial has one term, the binomial has two terms separated by a plus or a minus sign, and a trinomial has three terms separated by plus or minus signs.

So our expression seven π to the fourth power π would be monomial. Thereβs only one algebraic term. Thereβs no plus or minus signs with other terms. So monomial will be our final answer.
