See explanation.
Explanation:
To write a polynomial in a standard form you have to set its terms according to the variable powers in a descending order.
In this example it would give:
This expression is a polynomial of fourth degree with 4 terms:

#x^4# with a coefficient of#6# 
#x^2# with a coefficient of#3# 
#x# with a coefficient of#4# 
The free term (without any variable)
#2#
