# What is the degree, type, leading coefficient, and constant term of h(x)=-6?

Nov 21, 2017

degree= 0
type= constant
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
