Question

Indicate whether the expression defines a polynomial function.

g(x) = −4x5 − 3x2 + x −
 2
polynomial
or
not a polynomial

If it is a polynomial function, identify the following. (If it is not a polynomial function, enter DNE for all three answers.)

(b) Identify the constant term.

(c) State the degree.

Step 1

Coefficients of x terms are rational numbers and the exponents are integers.

So g(x) is a polynomial.

Step 2

a) Leading coefficient is the coefficient of x^5 , that is -4

Step 3

b) constant term is the term with out x.

That ...
