1. The square of the sum of two terms
(a+b)2=a2+2ab+b2
2. The square of the difference of two terms
(a-b)2=a2-2ab+b2
3. The product of the sum and the difference of two terms.
(a+b)(a-b)=a2-b2
4. The product of two binomials having a common term.
(x+a)(x+b)=x2+(a+b)x+ab
5. Legendre's Identity
(x+y)2+(x-y)2=2(x2+y2)

12. polynomial
algebraic expression with more than one term
13. binomial
has two algebraic terms
14. trinomial
algebraic expression with three terms
15. relative degree
degree with respect to a certain variable. it is equal to the index of that variable
16. absolute degree
it is the sum of the indices of all the variables in a term
17. Relative degree of a polynomial
it is the degree with respect to a certain variable. It is equal to the highest relative degree with respect to that variable of the terms in the polynomial.
18. absolute degree of a polynomial
it is the highest absolute degree of the terms in the polynomial.
