A monomial is an algebraic expression in which the only operations that appear between the variables are the product and the power of the natural exponent.
Parts of a Monomial
The coefficient of a monomial is the number that multiplies the variable(s).
The literal part is constituted by the letters and its exponents.
The degree of a monomial is the sum of all exponents of the letters or variables.
The degree of 2x² y³z is: 2 + 3 + 1 = 6
Two monomials are similar when they have the same literal part.
2x² y³z is similar to 5x² y³z
