Writing Polynomials
in
or
order
2x4y3 – 5x3y4 + 5x2 – x + 3
is written in descending order for the x variable. The term
with the greatest exponent for x is written first.
5 – 3xy3 + 4x3y4 – 3x5y3
is written in ascending order for the x variable. The term with
the lowest exponent for the x is written first.
What is the exponent for x in the term 5? _______
Arrange each polynomial in descending order for the x variable:
4x4 + 4x7 + x2 + 2x3 ___________________________________
3y + 4x5y2 – 4x2 + 5xy4 + 3x3 _____________________________
x + 3x5 + 4x3 + 5x2 + 6x7 – 2x4 ____________________________
- 14y + 7x2y3 – 10x3y2 – 14x7 ______________________________
Insert the term in the correct place for descending order according to the x:
3x4
5x5 + 2x3 + 7x + 1
2x
x3 + 3x2 + 5
X3y7
x5 y + x4y + x2y3
