# How do you write a polynomial in standard form, then classify it by degree and number of terms -6x^2+x^4?

${x}^{4} - 6 {x}^{2}$ . 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 $6 {x}^{2}$. This is a polynomial of degree 4. Since it has only two terms it would be binomial
