Standard form :

Classify by degree: Quadratic

Classify by number of terms: Binomial

#### Explanation:

Standard form suggests that

- Combine all like terms together

- Rearrange it so that the degrees are arranged in a descending order from left to right.

So in

We first combine like terms together

Now we rearrange it so the degrees are in descending order

We can see that the degree in

We can also see that there are two terms in this equation, so it is classified as a binomial.
