# How do you write a polynomial in standard form, then classify it by degree and number of terms 3s^2 + 12s^3 + 6?

Nov 12, 2017

$12 {s}^{3} + 3 {x}^{2} + 6$ is a third degree polynomial with three terms.

#### Explanation:

$3 {s}^{2} + 12 {s}^{3} + 6$

In standard form, the exponents are written from the largest exponent to the least exponent. $\left(6 = {6}^{1}\right)$.

Standard form

$12 {s}^{3} + 3 {x}^{2} + 6$

This is a third degree polynomial with three terms.
