How do you write a polynomial in standard form, then classify it by degree and number of terms #g^4 - 2g^3 - g^5#?
The standard form of a polynomial means that the order of degree, with the highest degree going first, and then the next highest, and so on and so forth...
So, we go from
This is the standard form of the polynomial. Now let's classify it
Classification by term:
We are actually classifying the expression by the number of terms. So, there are more than 3 terms (
Classification by degree:
Once the expression is in standard form, we just look at the leading term, and the degree. So, the degree in this polynomial is
