    Descending order means in terms of the power. What's the highest power of x? What's the lowest power of x?

    Yeah! 4 is the highest power, and 0 is the lowest. [\x^{0} = 1\] Anything raised to the 0th power is 1. So, let's put in order now

    \[x^{0} = 1\] sorry, latex doesn't like me

    \[3x^{0} + 2x^{2} − 3x^{4} + x^{3}+ 0x^{1}\] Put that in order! \[− 3x^{4} + x^{3} + 2x^{2}+ 0x^{1} + 3x^{0} \]

    Actually disregard the 0x^1. I don't think the question wants that.
