Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok... 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok... 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?
