$6x^{5} + x^{2} - 3$
A trinomial is a formula with 3 terms, and a degree is a term with the largest exponent. If you were to write a trinomial with a 5th degree, you would pick any few terms. Let's say ours could be 6, 1, and 3. Now pick a variable, let's say x. Let's make it 6x, x, and 3. Now let's add the exponents, let's say $6x^{5}$ , $x^{2}$ , and 3. Now we need the signs, let's say, 1 + and 1 -. The equation could be $6x^{5} + x^{2} - 3$. Now you have a possible answer.
