Why is it impossible to have a linear trinomial with one variable?

The order of a linear polynomial is one. If there is only one variable, the only possible terms are the first order term, ax^1, and the zeroth order term, bx^0. Hence any linear polynomial in a single variable will be at most a binomial.
Breaking the constant (zeroth order) term into the sum of two constants does not constitute the addition of a term and does not make a binomial into a trinomial.

like 3x^1 + 2x^0 + 5?
