arrange the terms of each polynomial so that the powers of x are in descending order:

10-10x+5xto the 3rd power

/descending order/ ie: greatest to smallest:

so:

5x^2 + 10x - 10

Right?

Is it from greatest to smallest? In 5x^2 + 10x - 10, the powers of x are respectively x^2 then x^1 and then no x so it has a 0 power.

You're obviously fishing for answers to your homework questions,
and really don't care if you understand or not...

Come on man, they've basically given you the answer in the question. You need to show some reasoning so we know where you're going wrong.

Since he said 10-10x+5xto the third power wouldn't it be this:

5x^3-10x+10

On a test, I'd play it safe: 5x^3 + 0x^2 + 10x^1 + 10x^0
