Identify the degree leading term and leading coefficient of the polynomial 6x^2-4x^8+9z+10

Accepted Solution

The degree of a polynomial is the highest exponent of the variable, so in this case, the degree is 8 since x^8 is the highest exponent of x. The leading term is the term with the highest degree, which is -4 x^8. The leading coefficient is the coefficient of the leading term, which is -4.
