# Describe Third Degree Polynomial

An expression that has more than two algebraic terms 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 highest degree of the expression is 3 or the power of the leading term is 3.

### Thus, If the degree of the highest term in the polynomial is 3 it is called a third-degree polynomial
