How do you write a polynomial in standard form, then classify it by degree and number of terms #y^3-4y+6-y^2#?
See the explanation
The standard form is that the highest power (index) is on the left. The as you move right the indexes become progressively less
Thus we have:
By the way
The order of the expression is that of the highest index. This this is of order 3
The number of terms is 4
