The Question(s)::
Write the polynomial
22x+5x^22x^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,

Rewrite 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.

Thanks!
So, is the degree the highest exponent?
For some reason, I keep thinking it's five.
But, I might be wrong.
