## Short Revision for Ch 2 Polynomials Class 9 Maths

1. In the polynomial p(x), the highest exponent of x is called the degree of the polynomial p(x).
2. Polynomials of degrees 1, 2 and 3 are called linear, quadratic and cubic polynomials respectively.
3. A linear polynomial in x is of the form ax + b, a ≠ 0.
4. A quadratic polynomial in x is of the form ax2 + bx + c, a ≠ 0.
5. A cubic polynomial in x is of the form ax3 + bx2 + cx + d,  a ≠ 0.
6. A constant polynomial is free from a variable. 0, 7, 8, -4, etc. are examples of constant polynomials.
7. 0 is also called the zero polynomial.
8. The degree of a non - zero constant polynomial is 0.
9. The degree of the zero polynomial does not exist.
10. In the polynomial 3x3 - 4x + 7, the expressions 3x3 , - 4x and 7 are called the terms of the polynomial.
11. If a polynomial consists of only one variable, then the polynomial is called polynomial in one variable.
12. Polynomials consisting of one term, two terms and three terms are called monomial, binomial and trinomial respectively.
13. A real number k is a zero of the polynomial p(x), if p(k) = 0.
14. Every linear polynomial in one variable has a unique zero.
15. A non - zero constant polynomial has no zero.
16. Every real number is a zero of the zero polynomial.
17. A quadratic polynomial has at most two zeroes.
18. A cubic polynomial has at most three zeroes.
19. The polynomial equation of the polynomial p(x) is given by p(x) = 0.
20. Remainder Theorem : If p(x) is a polynomial of degree greater than or equal to 1 and f(x) is divided by the linear polynomial x - a, then the remainder is f(a).
21. Dividend = (Divisor × Quotient ) + Remainder.
22. If dividend, divisor, quotient and remainder are respectively f(x), g(x), q(x) and r(x) such that degree of  f(x) ≥ degree of g(x) with g(x) ≠ 0, then  f(x) = g(x) × q(x) + r(x) where r(x) = 0 or degree of r(x) < degree of g(x).
23. Factor Theorem : If x -a is a factor of f(x). then f(a) = 0.
24. (x + y)2 = x2 + 2xy + y2
25. (x − y)2 = x2 − 2xy + y2
26. x2 – y2 = (x + y)(x – y)
27. (x + a)(a + b) = x2 + (a + b)x + ab
28. (x + y + z)2 = x2 + y2 + z2 + 2xy + 2yz + 2zx
29. (x + y)3 = x3 + y3 + 3xy(x + y) = x3 + 3x2y + 3xy2 + y3
30. (x – y)3 = x3 – y3 – 3xy(x – y) = x3 – 3x2y + 3xy2 – y3
31. x3 + y3 + z3 – 3xyz = (x + y + z)(x2 + y2 + z2 – xy – yz – zx)
32. x3 + y3 + z3 = 3xyz, if x + y + x = 0
