${x}^{2} + x - 6$

#### Explanation:

A polynomial in standard form is arranged with its terms in sequence from highest to lowest degree.
(The degree of a term is the sum of the exponents of the variables in the term).

${x}^{2} \textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXxXX}}$: degree 2
$x \left(= {x}^{1}\right) \textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{x}}$: degree 1
$6 \left(= 6 {x}^{0}\right)$: degree 0
