Standard form: $-3x^5+3x^2-1$ Degree = 5 Number of terms = 3 This polynomial is a quintic trinomial.
RECALL: A polynomial is written in standard form if its terms are arranged in descending degree. Simplify the given expression and write the polynomial in standard form: $-3x^5+2x^2+x^2-1 \\=-3x^5+3x^2-1.$ This polynomial has a degree of 5 and it has three terms. Thus, it is a quintic trinomial.
