$\text{Kind: }\text{ trinomial }\\\text{Degree: } 2$
Since the +/- operator separates terms, the given polynomial expression, $4z^2-11z+2 ,$ has $3$ terms. The degree of a polynomial is the highest degree among all the terms. The term that has the highest degree is the term $4z^2 .$ Hence, the given polynomial has the following characteristics: \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} \text{Kind: }\text{ trinomial }\\\text{Degree: } 2 .\end{array}
