How do you state the degree and leading coefficient of the polynomial function #F(x) = 14+ 13x^4 - 6x - 14x^3 -8x^2#?
The leading coefficient is
The degree is
To obtain the leading coefficient it is necessary to rewrite the equation in canonical form, that is with the terms listed in descending order of their
The leading coefficient is the coefficient of the highest order
The degree is the degree (exponent) of the highest order
