## Integer Coeffieicent of Degree

Hello all,

Can anyone explain what "Integer Coefficient of Degree n" where n is some positive integer (e.g 6) of a polynomial refers to?

I know what integers and coefficients are but I don't know what the above refers to. For example if you had something like this:

Suppose some polynomial f(x) exists with integer coefficients of degree 12 where f(0)=2

What would this polynomial look like/ how would you write or calculate the expression?

Thank You
Shihab

 Suppose some polynomial f(x) exists with integer coefficients of degree 12 where f(0)=2
I think that the phrase "of degree 12" refers to the polynomial, not the integer coefficients. A better way to write the sentence is

 Suppose that there exists a polynomial of degree 12 and having integer coefficients such that f(0) = 2.
