Refer tot he explanation.

Explanation:

Given:

$3 {x}^{4} - 9 {x}^{3} - 3 {x}^{2} + 6$

You have already written the polynomial in standard form, from highest to lowest exponent and then the constant.

This is a 4th degree polynomial because the highest exponent is $4$ in ${x}^{4}$.

It has four terms, which are separated by addition and subtraction symbols.
