See explanation.
Explanation:
To write a poolynomial in standard form you have to order its terms by decreasing powers of the variable, so here it will be:
#9x^211x+1#
Now when the polynomial is in the standard form we can say that it is:

a trinomial  because it has 3 terms

a polynomial of the second degree  because the highest exponent of
#x# is#2# .
