5th degree trinomial

And it's already in standard form starting with the highest degree and going to the lowest one.

#### Explanation:

Always write the polynomial with the highest degree term first and since this has three terms it is a trinomial and also when you determine the degree of the polynomial, you look at the term with the highest degree which is the first one.
