Indicate whether the expression defines a polynomial function. $g\left(x\right)=-4{x}^{5}-3{x}^{2}+x-2$ polynomial or not a polynomial If it is a polynomial function, identify the following. (If it is not a polynomial function, enter DNE for all three answers.) (a) Identify the leading coefficient. (b) Identify the constant term. (c) State the degree.

Coefficients of x terms are rational numbers and the exponents are integers. So g(x) is a polynomial. $g\left(x\right)=-4{x}^{5}-3{x}^{2}+x-2$
a) Leading coefficient is the coefficient of ${x}^{5},$ that is -4 Answer(a): Leading coefficient = -4 b) constant term is the term with out x. That is -2 Answer(b): Constant term = -2 c) Degree is the highest power present in the polynomial. That is 5. Answer(c): Degree = 5
