Let f(x) = x^4-3x^2 + 2 and g(x) = 2x^4 - 6x^2 + 2x -1. What is the degree of f(x) * g(x)?

 

if possible, provide an explanation. thank you!

The leading term of f(x) is  x^4

The leading term of g(x) is  2x^4

 

The leading term of their product will be   2x^8

So what is the degree going to be?
