How do you write a polynomial in standard form, then classify it by degree and number of terms #3pq^4-2p^2q+q^3#?

5th degree trinomial
And it's already in standard form starting with the highest degree and going to the lowest one.


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.
