Polynomials are classified on degree.
If, Degree = 3, it is cubic polynomial
Degree = 2, It is quadratic polynomial
Degree = 1, It is linear polynomial
Degree = 0, It is constant polynomial

Find degree & type of polynomial
x ^{ 3 } − 3x ^{ 2 } + 4x + 10
-a-
Here, Degree = Highest Power = 3
So, it is cubic polynomial.
-ea-
x ^{ 2 } + 2x + 4
-a-
Degree = Highest Power = 2
So, it is quadratic polynomial.
-ea-
x + 30
-a-
Degree = Highest Power = 1
So, it is linear polynomial.
-ea-
3
-a-
3 = 3 × 1
3 = 3 × 0
Degree = Highest Power = 0
So, it is constant polynomial.
