$x^2-3x+4$ $quadratic$ $trinomial$

Work Step by Step

This is the problem. $x^2+4-3x$ We need to put the polynomial is standard form, then name the polynomial. $x^2$ has the highest degree, so it will go first, followed by $-3x$ and $4$. $x^2-3x+4$ is the polynomial's standard form. Now, we need to name the polynomial. It is quadratic because its highest degree is $2$, and it is a trinomial because it has three terms. Therefore, it is a quadratic trinomial.
