polynomial of degree 3.

Work Step by Step

Polynomials consist of one or more monomials and have the form: $$a_nx^n+a_{n-1}x^{n-1}+...+ a_1x+a+0$$ where $x$ is the variable, $a_n$ is the leading coefficient, and $n$ is a non-negative integer called the degree. We are given the polynomial $$2y^3+\sqrt 2$$ Comparing with the polynomial general form, we see that this is a polynomial with degree $3$.
