Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Would the standard form be: \[\large 5a^2 + 24a  5\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what was ur first step ??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I distributed 5 to a^2 , 4a , and 7 to get 5a^2, +20a, 35.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1when distribute 4(a+5) what did you get ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes right now combine like terms \[\huge\rm 4a+205a^2+20a35\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(\color{blue}{\text{Originally Posted by}}\) @calculusxy Would the standard form be: \[\large 5a^2 + 24a  5\] \(\color{blue}{\text{End of Quote}}\) pretty sure it's a typo ;d

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(4a + 20a) > 24a (20  35) > 5 5a^2 so now it would be: \[\large 5a^2 + 24a 5 \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1We know that when writing the standard form of a polynomial, you need to order it from the highest to the least degrees. Let's say we have 4p^3q^3 and pq^3, then what would go first?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you should add the exponents of both terms \[\huge\rm 4xy =4x^1y^1\] so highest degree of this term would be 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\large 4p^3q^3 \] or \[\large pq^3\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1to write it in standard form you should go highest to lowest degree \[\large\rm 2x^3 +4x^4 +8x^2 ~~would ~be~ 4x^4+2x^3+8x^2\] right so when there are more than one variable highest degree would depends on the sum of both degrees so \[\large\rm 4p^3q^3 \] 3+3 =6 \[\large\rm p^1q^3\] 1+3 =4 so which terms hve the higest degree ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.14p^3q^3 which would have the highest degree of 6..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i'll give you an example \[\huge\rm \color{Red}{4xy^2} ,\color{blue}{ 5x^3y^4}\] \[\large\rm \color{ReD}{4xy^2}\] 1+2= 3 \[\large\color{blue}{5x^3y^4}\] 3+4 = 7 so blue term is with the the highest term so ur answer would be 5x^3y^4 ,4xy^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1okay so if we don't see an exponent, then we just have to add that invisible 1 right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes right x is same as x to the 1 power
