Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You have to foil. After you foiled the equations the highest number exponent will be the degree of the equation. The number of terms is simply how many things you have at the end, i.e, 4x^2+2x+1 has 3 terms, 4x^2, 2x, and 1 are all terms.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[w \left( w 1 \right)\left( 5w +2 \right)\] First you will need to multiply w(w1) w*w= \[w ^{2}\] w*1=w so now its \[(w ^{2}w)(5w+2)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Try to multiply the outermost part, which is w^2*5w*, then w^2*2, then w*5w, and finally w*2. The degree will be to the 3rd.
