1. Let $$f(x) = x^4-3x^2 + 2$$ and $$f(x) = x^4-3x^2 + 2$$. Let $$a$$ be a constant. What is the largest possible degree of $$f(x) + a\cdot g(x)$$?

2. Let $$f(x) = x^4-3x^2 + 2$$ and $$g(x) = 2x^4 - 6x^2 + 2x -1$$. Let $$b$$ be a constant. What is the smallest possible degree of the polynomial $$f(x) + b\cdot g(x)$$
