Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if the polynomial is written in standard form (from highest power to lowest) then it is the first coefficient you see

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[f(x)=4x^2+3x^25x+2\] leading coefficient is \(4\) for example

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay how about the polynomial: P(x)=3(x1)(x+3)(2x5)^2 would it be 3??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you multiply out (in your head) you will get \(3\times4=12\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0satellite the leading coefficient of 4 x^2 +3x^@5x will be 1 ?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or if you multiply out for real you get \[12 x^436 x^381 x^2+330 x225\]but you don't need to do that to see the 12
