degree= 0

type= constant

leading coefficient= 0

constant term= -6

#### Explanation:

-6 is the product of this equation therefore there are no constant term or leading coefficient.

- The degree of a polynomial is the highest degree of its terms
- The leading coefficient of a polynomial is the coefficient of the leading term
- Any term that doesn't have a variable in it is called a "constant" term
- types of polynomials depends on the degree of the polynomial

#x^5# = quintic

#x^4# = quadratic

#x^3# = cubic

#x^2# = quadratic
