Here's an example. The first coefficient is negative, there are only three terms, the trinomial is at its fourth degree, and the constant is even.
 

\(-3x^4+6x^2+106\)

quartic - I looked this up and the different definitions are confusing but most articals seem to imply that is it just a polynomial of degreee 4.    i.e. the highest power is 4.

 

Trinomial - 3 terms

negative leading coefficient 

even constant - the constant is the number that is not attached to a pronumeral

 

\(-x^4+5x+8\)

 

three terms therefore a trinomial

degree 4

8 is an even constant

-1 is a negative leading co-efficient
