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

• $2 {x}^{3} - {x}^{2} + 4 x$
• Degree=3
• Number of terms=3

#### Explanation:

The polynomial is already in standard form because

• largest to smallest exponent
• simplified

The degree of the polynomial is 3 because the degree is the highest exponent.
This would be a trinomial because it has three terms.
