the exponent of its variable (the degree of a constant term is 0)

degree or a polynomial

the degree of a polynomial is the highest degree of all its terms

divisibility

if a number [latex]m[/latex] is a multiple of [latex]n[/latex], then we say that [latex]m[/latex] is divisible by [latex]n[/latex]

factors

if [latex]a \cdot b=m[/latex], then [latex]a[/latex] and [latex]b[/latex] are factors of [latex]m[/latex], and [latex]m[/latex] is the product of [latex]a[/latex] and [latex]b[/latex]

like terms

terms that are either constants or have the same variables with the same exponents

monomial

a polynomial with exactly one term

multiple of a number

A number is a multiple of [latex]n[/latex] if it is the product of a counting number and [latex]n[/latex]

polynomial

an algebraic term, or two or more terms, combined by addition or subtraction

prime number

a number whose only factors are 1 and itself

square of a number

if [latex]n^{2}=m[/latex], then [latex]m[/latex] is the square of [latex]n[/latex]

square root of a number

if [latex]n^{2}=m[/latex], then [latex]n[/latex] is the square root of [latex]m[/latex]
