Coefficients of x terms are rational numbers and the exponents are integers. So g(x) is a polynomial. g(x)=4x53x2+x2
a) Leading coefficient is the coefficient of x5, 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
