Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The degree is the highest exponent of y. Look at the polynomial and post what you see as the largest exponent: Yy^2+5+2y^3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The exponent is 3 so the polynomial is of degree 3.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yy^2+5+2y^3 For descending order, start with 2y^3 and put as the next thing the term with exponent 2. Do you see that term?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What about the y? Yy^2+5+2y^3 You should have 4 terms in the answer if the capital Y is part of the problem.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y has an understood exponent of 1 as in y^1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0>.you were wrong btw, it's 5+yy^2+2y^3 No, that ^^ is ascending order. 2y^3  y^2 + y + 5 is descending order. >> descending order is what you wrote in the original problem. So, 2y^3  y^2 + y + 5 is correct for the question you posted. Check and see if you wrote the problem incorrectly.
