If the following is a polynomial function, then state its degree and leading coefficient. If it is not, then state this fact. f(x) = -15x5 - 7x4 + 3

Please present the "fifth power of x" as x^5, and not as x5. f(x) = -15x5 - 7x4 + 3 should be written f(x) = -15x^5 - 7x^4 -3 Some of the 6 terms of this 5th order polynomial are missing (which is OK in this context) Which of the 3 terms has the highest power of x? What is the coefficient of that term?

The "degree" of this polynomial is the largest exponent of x.

Degree is the exponent of the leading coefficient.. Which in this case -15 is the leading coefficient and its degree is 5
