$-2x+13$, which is polynomial; the leading coefficient: $-2$, and the degree is: $1$. This is linear.
A polynomial function is in the form of $a_nx_n+a_{n-1}x_{n-1}+...+a_1x+a_0$ where $a_n\ne0$ and the coefficients are real. Then $a_n$ is the leading coefficient, $n$ is the degree and $a_n$ is the leading coefficient. Hence, the function in standard form is: $-2x+13$, which is a polynomial. Leading coefficient: $-2$ Degree: $1$ Linear.
