p(x)=3+4x-x^4-7x^6
what is the degree of p?
what is the leading coefficient of p?
What is the constant term of p?
What is the the coefficient of the x^4 term?
What is the coeffcient of the x^3 term?
Thanks
Hello,
The degree of a polynomial is the highest power of x, with a coefficient different from 0.
The degree of $\displaystyle x^{\color{red}2}-4$ is 2.
The leading coefficient is the coefficient of x powered to the highest degree.
The constant term is the sole term which doesn't contain x.
In the previous example, the constant term was -4
