# How do you write a polynomial in standard form, then classify it by degree and number of terms #y^3-4y+6-y^2#?

See the explanation

The standard form is that the highest power (index) is on the left. The as you move right the indexes become progressively less

The order of the expression is that of the highest index. This this is of order 3

The number of terms is 4

To write a polynomial in standard form, arrange its terms in descending order of degree. Then, classify it by its degree and number of terms.

The polynomial (y^3 - 4y + 6 - y^2) in standard form is (y^3 - y^2 - 4y + 6).

Classification:

- Degree: The highest power of the variable present in the polynomial is (3), so the degree of the polynomial is (3).
- Number of terms: The polynomial has (4) terms.

So, (y^3 - y^2 - 4y + 6) is a cubic polynomial with (4) terms.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
