What is the standard form of a polynomial #5y(y^5+8y^3)#?
The first step is to distribute the bracket.
#rArr5y(y^5+8y^3)=5y^6+40y^4" in standard form"#
expressing a polynomial in standard form means writing the term with the highest power of the variable, followed by descending powers of the variable until the last term, usually a constant.
Here there are only 2 terms. The one with the highest power of the variable being
