It is a polynomial function with a degree of $5$

Work Step by Step

A function $f(x)$ is a polynomial function when it has the form of $$f(x)=a_nx^n+a_{nāˆ’1}x^{nāˆ’1}++a_1x+a_0$$ where $a_n\ne0$ and $n$ is an integer. The given function has the correct form and $n=5$. Thus, it is a polynomial function with a degree of $5$.
