Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what is (3x\(^2\) • 4x\(^3\)) ? that will give you x raised to what power?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, that is x raised to the 5th power (and that will be the biggest power you will have in your new function  is that correct?) so what is the degree of your new function?
