### Algorithm for addition of two polynomials using linked list?

Let p and q be the two polynomials represented by the linked
list. 1. while p and q are not null, repeat step 2. 2. If powers of
the two terms ate equal then if the terms do not cancel then insert
the sum of the terms into the sum Polynomial Advance p Advance q
Else if the power of the first polynomial> power of second Then
insert the term from first polynomial into sum polynomial Advance p
Else insert the term from second polynomial into sum polynomial
Advance q 3. copy the remaining terms from the non empty polynomial
into the sum polynomial.

### If a polynomial is the difference of two squares?

No, a polynomial is the sum of any two monomials, i.e.,
any two terms, for example, a + b, a - b, a2 + b2, x2y -3, etc.
("Sum" may include negative terms.)

### Is second-term polynominal a bionomial polynominal?

A binomial is an algebraic expression of the sum or the
difference of two terms.
A polynomial is an expression of more than two algebraic terms,
esp. the sum of several terms that contain different powers of the
same variable(s).
The degree of a polynomial is the highest degree of its
terms.
Now that we have the definitions and the correct spellings out
of the way, the answer to your question is a qualified no. There's
no such thing as a second-term polynomial. I suspect you mean
second degree, but both binomials and polynomials can be
second-degree. There's also no such thing as a binomial polynomial.
Expressions of two terms are binomials, more than two terms are
polynomials, exactly three terms are trinomials.
