Related to Total degree: degree of a polynomial


1. Maths an expression consisting of a single term, such as 5ax
2. consisting of a single algebraic term
3. Biology of, relating to, or denoting a taxonomic name that consists of a single term



the simplest type of algebraic expression considered in elementary algebra. A product consisting of a numerical coefficient and one or several variables, each with some integral positive exponent, is called a monomial. An individual numeral without literal factors is also called a monomial. Examples of monomials are –5ax3, + a3c3xy, –7, + x3 and –a. In these examples, the coefficient +1 is implicit for the monomials +a3c3xy and +x3 and the coefficient –1 is implicit for the monomial –a.

In older algebra textbooks, an algebraic expression in which the last operation in the order of operations is not addition or subtraction is sometimes called a monomial. In this case, for example, the expressions 2(a + b) and x/(y + 1) are called monomials. However, even textbooks that start out by using this definition usually subsequently treat monomials in the narrower sense given above.
