    well, the degree matters. the highest exponent or degree is 5,

    ummm was i wrong? This what i had to do in skewl if i remember correctly. Th eleading coefficient had to be the coefficient of teh highest degree but i may be having memory failure

    if the highest degree is 5, therefor the leadind coefficient is -0.2x^5

    Actually, the leading coefficient is -0.2. In a polynomial, the coefficient of the term with the highest degree is called the leading coefficient.
