How do you find the degree and leading coefficient of the polynomial #a^3+6a+14#?
The degree of a polynomial is the largest exponent of the monomials.
The largest exponent is
The leading coefficient is the constant that is in front of the largest exponent monomial. If there is no constant, it is
The degree of a polynomial is the highest exponent of all of the terms. We see that this is
The leading coefficient is just the number multiplying the term with the highest degree.
Right now, we only see
Hope this helps!
