FAN AND MEDAL
Can someone please work through this with me??
A restaurant has x floors. The number of tables on each floor is 4 less than the number of floors. The number of chairs with each table is 1 less than the number of tables on each floor. The expression below shows the total number of chairs in the restaurant:
x(x  4)(x  5)
Part A: What type of polynomial is x(x  4)(x  5)? (3 points)
Part B: What is the degree of the polynomial x(x  4)? (3 points)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the highest exponent tells the degree. 2nd degree → x² → quadratic 3rd degree → x³ → cubic

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I know that but how don't I figure that out because x(x  4)(x  5) is already factored..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When you multiply them together, what will the highest exponent be?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No. You have 3 different factors, all of which include an x. If you can't tell by looking, you may need to multiply them out.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I got \[x ^{3}9x+20\] so it would be a third degree trinomial right?
