The degree is defined as the highest power of the polynomial. The leading coefficient is the number in front of it, multiplying it.

"Once the polynomial is in descending order meaning the the first term has the largest exponent. That exponent is called the degree of the polynomial. The coefficient of the variable term with the largest exponent is called the leading coefficient." -- (google)

so would the degree be 6 and the leading coefficient is 15 ? sorry I'm really bad at math

The degree is correct, just recall that the sign before the coefficient is part of the coefficient.

so it would -15 for the coefficient
