is $3 {x}^{4} , 3 , 4$ respectively.

#### Explanation:

The leading term of a polynomial is the term with the highest degree.

The leading coefficient of a polynomial is the coefficient of the leading term.

The degree of a polynomial is the highest degree of its terms.

Hence,leading term,leading coefficient,degree of the given polynomial is $3 {x}^{4} , 3 , 4$ respectively.
