#x^4 -6x^2# . Degree is 4, it is binomial


In standard form the highest degree term come first followed by terms of lower degree in descending order. The given polynomial has #x^4# as the highest degree term. So, it would come first followed by the other term #6x^2#. This is a polynomial of degree 4. Since it has only two terms it would be binomial
