### What is the degree of a constant polynomial?

• A.

0

• B.

1

• C.

2

• D.

3

A. 0
Explanation
The degree of a constant polynomial is always 0.

Rate this question:

• 2.

### Which transformation does not change the degree of a polynomial?

• A.

Translation

• B.

Rotation

• C.

Scaling

• D.

Reflection

A. Translation
Explanation
Translation is the transformation that does not change the degree of a polynomial. It involves shifting the entire polynomial horizontally without altering its degree.

### What is the leading coefficient in the polynomial: 3x^5 - 2x^3 + 4x^2 - 7?

• A.

3

• B.

-2

• C.

4

• D.

-7

A. 3
Explanation
The leading coefficient is the coefficient of the term with the highest degree, which in this case is 3.

Rate this question:

• 4.

### What is the degree of the polynomial: 2x^4 + 5x^3 - 3x^2 + 6x + 1?

• A.

1

• B.

2

• C.

3

• D.

4

D. 4
Explanation
The degree of a polynomial is determined by the highest exponent of the variable, which in this case is 4.

Rate this question:

• 5.

### Which term is of the highest degree in the polynomial: 2x^3 + 4x^2 - 6x + 5?

• A.

2x^3

• B.

4x^2

• C.

-6x

• D.

5

A. 2x^3
Explanation
The term "2x^3" has the highest degree because it has the highest exponent of the variable x, which is 3.

Rate this question:

• 6.

### What is the standard form of the polynomial: -2x^3 + 7x^2 - x + 3x^4?

• A.

3x^4 - 2x^3 + 7x^2 - x

• B.

-2x^3 + 7x^2 - x + 3x^4

• C.

X^4 - x + 7x^2 - 2x^3

• D.

3x^4 + 7x^2 - 2x^3 - x

B. -2x^3 + 7x^2 - x + 3x^4
Explanation
The standard form of a polynomial is written with the terms arranged in descending order of degree, so the correct standard form is "-2x^3 + 7x^2 - x + 3x^4."

Rate this question:

• 7.

### What is the degree of a quadratic polynomial?

• A.

0

• B.

1

• C.

2

• D.

3

C. 2
Explanation
A quadratic polynomial has a degree of 2, which means the highest exponent of the variable is 2.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### Which transformation involves multiplying all coefficients by a constant?

• A.

Translation

• B.

Rotation

• C.

Scaling

• D.

Reflection

C. Scaling
Explanation
Scaling is the transformation that involves multiplying all coefficients of a polynomial by a constant, effectively changing the magnitude of the polynomial.
