Since the degree of the polynomial is the highest degree of all the
terms, **it looks like the degree is 2. **
**Make sure that you don't fall into the trap
of thinking it is always the degree of the first term. This polynomial
is not written in standard form (descending order). So we had to
actually go to the second term to get the highest degree.**
Since there are two terms, **this is a binomial.** |
