Section 4.2 Quiz 5.8 
Question: 
Give the possible values for the degree of the polynomial and the sign (+ or –) of the leading coefficient (x^{n} term). 

Degree is odd (1, 3, 5, etc.); leading coefficient is positive. Degree is odd (1, 3, 5, etc.); leading coefficient is negative. Degree is even (2, 4, 6, etc.); leading coefficient is positive. Degree is even (2, 4, 6, etc.); leading coefficient is negative. 

Variations:
