# What is the standard form of y= (x-2)(x+4)*x-3x+2?

Feb 9, 2016

Standard form is $y = a {x}^{3} + b {x}^{2} + c x + d$

#### Explanation:

As it is an algebraic function and the highest power is ${x}^{3}$, it is of the form

$y = a {x}^{3} + b {x}^{2} + c x + d$

In fact simplifying and combining similar terms in the given function this leads to

$y = {x}^{3} + 2 {x}^{2} - 11 x + 2$.
