You have written down your (and others) definition of binomial. Now write down you definition of polynomial (which I am not quite sure of) and you will see the difference, if any.

Commented:
bi means two so
(a-b)^9  -->2 variables

poly means 4 so
(a-b+c-d)^9  -->4 variables

is this is correct
Commented:
Monomial is 1 term
Binomial is 2 terms
Trinomial is 3 terms
Polynomial is made up of any number of terms that are added subtracted or multiplied (http://www.mathsisfun.com/algebra/polynomials.html)

There is no difference in theory and they are not treated differently from other terms. The link I gave above explains what and how a polynomial is, versus a monomial, binomial, etc. and how they can be added, subtracted or multiplied.

Commented:
so polynomial means more than 2
(a-b-c-d)^3

its gonna solve the same way as binomial
(a-b)^3

am i on a right track?

Commented:
but how to i put 4 variables in the above formula

you don't

The equation you gave is for binomials only. It is pretty complicated.
The equivalent general formula for polynomials would be extremely complicated and would take a long time to write down, let alone calculate. Furthermore it would have few practical uses that would not be handled by a computer.
