    The degree is the highest exponent of y. Look at the polynomial and post what you see as the largest exponent: Y-y^2+5+2y^3

    2y^3?

    The exponent is 3 so the polynomial is of degree 3.

    Y-y^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?

    2y^3+y^2+5 is that correct?

    What about the y? Y-y^2+5+2y^3 You should have 4 terms in the answer if the capital Y is part of the problem.

    you were wrong btw, it's 5+y-y^2+2y^3

    y has an understood exponent of 1 as in y^1

    >.you were wrong btw, it's 5+y-y^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.
