which x term has a power of 1..?
im not sure im pretty confused
i think the first power is 2
ok... look at the term \[3x^9\] 9 is the degree... it just means the power of x is 9 3 is the coefficient... does that make sense
so which term has x with a power of 1?
ok... so here is something you may know \[ax = ax^1\] a is the coefficient of a degree 1 term... can you match this to your polynomial?
your polynomial has 5 terms \[4x^2\] \[3x^9\] \[-6x^3\] 5x and -8 which term looks like \[ax~~or~~ax^1\] the example above is a degree 1 term...
and the degree is 9
|dw:1435187746740:dw| so what is left for the degree 1 term..?
im not sure
