## What are the names of polynomial equations with different degrees? |

The polynomial equations with different degrees (or orders)—especially the lowest degrees—are as follows:

*first degree*(1) polynomial = linear*second degree*(2) polynomial = quadratic*third degree*(3) polynomial = cubic*fourth degree*(4) polynomial = quartic*fifth degree*(5) polynomial = quintic*sixth degree*(6) polynomial = sextic
