# Math Help - polynomials

1. ## polynomials

my question is:
for the polynomial p(x)= (a+1)x³+(b-7)x²+c+5, find the values for a, b or c if
p(x) has degree 2

just started leaning sorry if anyone thinks i am dumb

2. If the polynomial has degree 2 then $a+1=0$ and $b-7\neq 0$

3. thanks for that red dog
