# What is the standard form of a polynomial #3(x^3-3)(x^2+2x-4)#?

Polynomials are in standard form when the highest-degree term is first, and the lowest degree term is last. In our case, we just need to distribute and combine like terms:

There are no terms to combine, since every term has a different degree, so our answer is:
