A polynomial is given below.
$${10-4x+x^5+3x^2-x-6x^2}$$
a. Write the polynomial using the fewest number of terms possible. Write the polynomial in standard form.
b. Identify the degree and leading coefficient of the polynomial.
Find each sum or difference. Write your answers in standard form.
a. $${(4x^2+x+7)+(2x^2+3x+1)}$$
b. $${(3x^3-x^2+8)-(x^3+5x^2+4x-7)}$$
c. $${3(x^3+8x)-2(x^3+12)}$$
d. $${(3+1)+6(p-8)-(p+2)}$$
