How do you write a polynomial in standard form, then classify it by degree and number of terms #2b^2 – 4b^3 + 6#?
Num. Terms: 3
The standard form of a polynomial is
The degree of a term is the highest exponent affecting the variable. So
The degree of a polynomial corresponds to the term in it which has the highest degree. In our case,
The number of terms in a polynomial is the number of "things" being added together. Here, we have
