#### Answer

Standard form: $x^3-2$ Degree = 3 Number of terms = 2 This polynomial is a cubic binomial.

#### Work Step by Step

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: $x^3+6x-6x-2 \\=x^3+0-2 \\=x^3-2.$ This polynomial has a degree of 3 and it has two terms. Thus, it is a cubic binomial.
