# Describe Third Degree Polynomial

An expression which has more than two algebraic term is called a polynomial. Let us see what is a third degree polynomial.

## Answer: The third degree polynomial is a polynomial in which the degree of the highest term is 3

## Explanation:

Third degree polynomial is of the form p(x) = ax^{3} + bx^{2}+ cx + d where 'a' is not equal to zero.It is also called cubic polynomial as it has degree 3.

Example: 5x^{3} + 2x^{2}+ 3x + 7 is a cubic polynomial or Third Degree Polynomial since the degree of the expression is 3.
