 Problem 1a:  Answer: Problem 1b:  Answer: Problem 1c:  Answer: Problem 1d:  Answer: Problem 1e:  Answer: Problem 1f:  Answer: Problem 2a:

 73,200,000 Answer: Problem 3a:  Answer: Problem 4a:  Answer: Since the degree is the sum of the variable exponents and it looks like we have a 2 and a 3 as our exponents, the degree would have to be 2 + 3 = 5.

 Problem 4b:

 -8 Answer: Since this is a constant term, it's degree is 0.

 Problem 5a:  Answer: Since the degree of the polynomial is the highest degree of all the terms, it looks like the degree is 5. Since there are two terms, this is a binomial.

 Problem 5b:  Answer: Since the degree of the polynomial is the highest degree of all the terms, it looks like the degree is 3. Since there is one term, this is a monomial.

 Problem 5c:  Answer: Since the degree of the polynomial is the highest degree of all the terms, it looks like the degree is 2. Since there are two terms, this is a trinomial.

 Problem 6a:  Answer: Problem 6b:  Answer: Problem 7a:  Answer: Problem 7b:  Answer: Problem 7c:  Answer: Problem 7d:  Answer: Problem 8a:  Answer: Problem 8b:  Answer: Step 1: Set up the long division  AND Step 2: Divide 1st term of divisor by first term of dividend to get first term of the quotient AND Step 3:  Take the term found in step 1 and multiply it times the divisor AND Step 4:  Subtract this from the line above AND Step 5:  Repeat until done AND Step 6: Write out the answer.
