#### Answer:

Standard form:

#### Explanation:

Note: I modified the question so that the term

A polynomial in standard form is arranged so that its terms are in descending degree sequence.

#{: ("term",color(white)("XXX"),"degree"), (10x^3,,3), (14x^2,,2), (-4x^4,,4), (x,,1) :}#

In descending degree sequence:

#{: ("term",color(white)("XXX"),"degree"), (-4x^4,,4), (10x^3,,3), (14x^2,,2), (x,,1) :}#

The **degree** of a term is the sum of the exponents of the variable(s) in the term.
