How do you write #2x^5-12+3x# in standard form?

1 Answer

Polynomials in standard form are written with the highest exponent first, followed by the lower exponents, ending with the constant :)


No need to do anything other than rearrange the numbers:

#f(x) = 2x^5+3x-12#

Ohh, but I almost forgot. To stay true to the standard form, you should write

#2x^5+3x-12 = 0 #
