If f(x) = -7x^4 + 3x^3 + x - 5, and g(x) is a polynomial such that the degree of f(x) + g(x) is 1, then what is the degree of g(x)?

 

Thanks!

If  f(x) + g(x)  is degree 1.....then g(x)   must  be (for example)  7x^4 - 3x^3   (a 4th degree polynomial)

 

Other answers are possible  but g(x)  must still be degree 4
