(Section 0.6: Polynomial, Rational, and Algebraic Expressions) 0.6.2 Example 1 (A Polynomial) 4 x 3 ± 5 2 x 2 + 1 is a 3 rd -degree polynomial in x with leading coefficient 4, leading term 4 x 3 , and constant term 1. The same would be true even if the terms were reordered: 1 ± 5 2 x 2 + 4 x 3 . The polynomial 4 x 3 ± 5 2 x 2 + 1 fits the form a n x n + a n ± 1 x n ± 1 + ... + a 1 x + a 0 , with degree n = 3 . It can be rewritten as: 4 x 3 ± 5 2 x 2 + 0 x + 1 , which fits the form
