why does zero consider as a polynomial but not as constant in $R[x]$
 
@Simple I am not really sure that this is true - is it written somewhere in this way?
However, zero polynomial is still rather special. Every $x\in R$ is a root. No other polynomial has this property. Other constant polynomials do not have any roots at all.

it's a true or false question. the original question polynomials of $Q[x]$ without the constant term is subsapce of $Q[x]$, the answer is true. My thought it is not because it does not have zero
 
By "polynomials of $Q[x]$ without the constant term" they probably mean polynomials of the form $a_nx^n+\dots+a_1x+a_0$, where $a_i\in Q$ and $a_0=0$.
For example, you could say that $x^2+2x=x^2+2x+0$ "has constant term" - but it is zero.
But I will agree that the question is a bit ambiguous. (Or, at the very least, it could be formulated more clearly.)
Anyway, you will probably agree that the set of all polynomials with $a_0=0$ over some field Q forms a vector subspace of Q[x].

I will certainly admit, that I would be unsure whether to answer true or false to the question phrased in this way.

is there any website or free software that directly converts math equations to MathJax code?
i'm a high school student and not much interested in learning in coding.i just want to ask math questions here.
please help.
Don't consider me rude.I'm interested in mathematics not computer science.
