    I think that the 5x would go first and then the 4? or is it based on the exponent?

    here the maximum degree of x is 4 so this is the degree of equation and now right this term at start and so on

    4

    ok and then for descending order how would i do that?

    it will be greater power of x to towards lower power of x

    so it would be 5x4y-6y+4xy+3x2y+1?

    start from x^4 and then x^3 and so on

    I'm still confused on what the descending order would be?

    Oder is the degree of variable means power like x^4 here Oder is 4 and it is greater degree now right x^3 then x^2 then x^1 then x^0 this is the descending Oder

    what would the descending order start off with in this specific polynomial? could you just give me the first two to get me going?

    ok now look the term containting higher power of x like -5x^4y+0x^3+3x^2y+4x^1y-6x^0y

    wait so it is this right>? -5x^4y+3x^2y+4xy-6y

    okay, and how would i classify this polynomial based on its terms?

    would it be a fifth-degree polynomial?

    no here the maximum degree of x is 4 so it's fourth degree

    oh ok, so its not a trinomial either?

    how'd you know it was a fourth degree? Just based on the maximum degree of x?

    it depend upon the power of variable in the polynomial
