N. If an 2 0, the degree of the polynomial is n, and an is called the leading coefficient. The term a0 is called the constant term. Thus 4x3 2 2x 2 3 is a third-degree polynomial in x with leading coefficient 4 and constant term 23. If two or more variables are in a term, the degree of the term is the sum of the exponents of the variables. The degree of a nonzero constant term is zero. Thus the degree of 4x2y is 2 1 1 5 3, the degree of 6xy is 1 1 1 5 2, and the degree of 3 is 0. The degree of a polynomial containing one or more variables is the degree of the term in the polynomial having the highest degree.

Richter scale The Richter scale reading for an earthquake measures its intensity (as a multiple of some minimum intensity used for comparison). 5 on the Richter scale would be severe. Express the intensity of such a quake in exponential form and in radical form. 0. 0. Calculate the ratio of these intensities (larger to smaller). Copyright 2011 Cengage Learning.
