Write the polynomial

2-2x+5x^2-2x^5

in standard form.

a.) What is its degree?

b.)What is the leading coefficient?

I missed this lesson in class. It's very confusing. Could someone please explain what to do?

Much appreciated,

Rae

**bobpursley**, Monday, November 5, 2007 at 9:13pmRewrite the polynomial with the highest degree first, in descending degrees.

Degree means the power of x, in a polynomial, one means the highest power of x when discussing degree.

So, is the degree the highest exponent?

For some reason, I keep thinking it's five.

But, I might be wrong.
