Standard form: $-2x^3$ Degree = 3 Number of terms = 1 This polynomial is a cubic monomial.
RECALL: A polynomial is written in standard form if its terms are written in descending degree. The given expression has terms that are like so combine them to have $(7-10+1)(x^3) \\=-2(x^3) \\=-2x^3$. This polynomial has degree 3 and has one term. It is a cubic monomial.
