degree= 0
type= constant
leading coefficient= 0
constant term= -6


-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
