Polynomials page 4.2 - 13 Section 4.2 Focus Exercises 1. For each term identify (i) its coefficient (ii) its variable cluster (iii) its degree. Term Coefficient Variable Cluster Degree of Term 5xy 7 - 3x 4 y 2 5 8 y 2 - x 3 x 5 y - 2w 9 2. Given each polynomial, (i) write it descending order, (ii) identify the leading coefficient, and (iii) write the degree of the polynomial. Polynomial In Descending Order Leading Coefficient Degree of the Polynomial 4x 7x 3 - 3 + x 2 + 6x 1 2x 3 + 5x 8x 2 2x 2 + 9 x 3 – 4x - 3x 4 + 9x 2 – 2x x 6 3.
