polynomial

(pŏl′ē-nō′mē-əl)
adj.
Of, relating to, or consisting of more than two names or terms.
n.
1. A taxonomic designation consisting of more than two terms.
2. Mathematics
a. An algebraic expression consisting of one or more summed terms, each term consisting of a constant multiplier and one or more variables raised to nonnegative integral powers. For example, x2 - 5x + 6 and 2p3q + y are polynomials. Also called multinomial.
b. An expression of two or more terms.

polynomial

a relationship between two variables such that y = a + bx + cx2 + ... qxn. A straight line is y = a + bx. Any curve can be approximated with a polynomial formula.
