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

May 29, 2017

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

#### Explanation:

No need to do anything other than rearrange the numbers:

$f \left(x\right) = 2 {x}^{5} + 3 x - 12$

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

$2 {x}^{5} + 3 x - 12 = 0$

:D
