-2$y^{2}$ + 5y; Quadratic binomial

Work Step by Step

STEP 1: First, write out the original expression. 5y-2$y^{2}$ The expression has two terms in it, thus classifying itself as a binomial. STEP 2: Rearrange the binomial from the greatest exponent value to the least exponent value. This will help in identifying the degree of the binomial -2$y^{2}$ + 5y The degree is the greatest exponent value, and in -2$y^{2}$ + 5y, the degree is 2. The name of a binomial with a degree of 2 is a quadratic binomial.
