$n, a_n, a_0$

Work Step by Step

Look at the definitions of the degree of a polynomial, leading coefficient of a polynomial and the constant term of a polynomial on page 28. Degree of a polynomial = n (It is the maximum of the degrees of its monomials / terms with non-zero coefficients.) Leading coefficient of a polynomial = $a_n$ (The coefficient of the term with the highest power) Constant term of a polynomial = $a_0$ ( term of degree 0)
