-5x^3 + 2x^2 + 1

a coefficient is the number that is multiplied by the variable.For instance, the coefficient of 2x is 2....because 2 (the number) is multiplied by the variable x.

so in ur problem....there are 2 coefficients..-5 and 2.

** the number 1 is not a coefficient, it is a constant...a " loner " with no variables (letters) attached.

** and if u have just the letter...such as n, the coefficient to that is 1 but the one is just not written...it is actually 1n.

okay...I am gonna shut up now :)

The lengths of three sides of a quadrilateral are shown below: Side 1: 3y2 + 2y − 6 Side 2: 3y − 7 + 4y2 Side 3: −8 + 5y2 + 4y The perimeter of the quadrilateral is 4y3 + 18y2 + 16y − 26. Part A: What is the total length of sides 1, 2, and 3 of the quadrilateral? (4 points) Part B: What is the length of the fourth side of the quadrilateral? (4 points) Part C: Do the answers for Part A and Part B show that the polynomials are closed under addition and subtraction? Justify your answer. (2 points) QUESTION 2: A rectangle has sides measuring (4x + 5) units and (3x + 10) units. Part A: What is the expression that represents the area of the rectangle? Show your work to receive full credit. (4 points) Part B: What are the degree and classification of the expression obtained in Part A? (3 points) Part C: How does Part A demonstrate the closure property for polynomials? (3 points) QUESTION 3: A bucket of paint has spilled on a tile floor. The paint flow can be expressed with the function p(t) = 5t, where t represents time in minutes and p represents how far the paint is spreading. The flowing paint is creating a circular pattern on the tile. The area of the pattern can be expressed as A(p) = πp2. Part A: Find the area of the circle of spilled paint as a function of time, or A[p(t)]. Show your work. (6 points) Part B: How large is the area of spilled paint after 2 minutes? You may use 3.14 to approximate π in this problem. (4 points)
