When a polynomial is divided by \(-3x^5 + 10x - 11,\) what are the possible degrees of the remainder? Enter all the possible values, separated by commas.

The degree of the dividing polynomial is 5; the remainder can have any degree smaller than that:  4, 3, 2, 1, 0.

 

[The remainder can be an x4, x3, x2, x, polynomial, or a constant (degree = 0).]
