\(\displaystyle{f{{\left({x}\right)}}}={x}^{{5}}+{2}{x}^{{4}}+{3}{x}^{{3}}−{2}{x}^{{6}}−{9}{x}^{{2}}−{6}{x}+{4}\)
Is it true or false the degree of this polynomial function is 5? If not, why? What is the degree?

False, because the degree of this polynomial function is the highest degree among the terms, which is \(\displaystyle{6}{\left(-{2}{x}^{{6}}\right)}\), in this instnance.
