How do you write a polynomial in standard form, then classify it by degree and number of terms #5x + x^3 − 3#?
To write a polynomial in standard form you have to order its terms by decreasing powers of the unknown.
Here it will be:
In this form you can say that:
It is a trinomial because itis a sum of 3 terms
The polynomial's degree is
#3#- it is the highest power of the unknown with non-zero coefficient.
