I don't understand how to write in standard form. My teacher hasn't taught this yet so I am very confused. Please help and show work. Thanks!

First one.....we write the terms in descending powers of m......so we have

4m^3 - 9 m^2 - m + 25 (cubic polynomial)

Second one ...... same thing ....descending powers of k ....so we have

(3/4)k^5 - (1/2)k^3 (quintic polynomial)

Third one.....this is a polynomial in two variables

The form is ax^2 + bxy + cy^2 + dx + ey + f

So we have

-x ^2 -3xy + 14y^2 (second power polynomial)

Last one.....nothing to be done.....there's no other way to write 9x ( first degree polynomial )
