Which statement best describes the equation x5 + x3 โ€“ 14 = 0?

The equation is quadratic in form because it is a fifth-degree polynomial.
The equation is quadratic in form because the difference of the exponent of the lead term and the exponent of the middle term is 2.
The equation is not quadratic in form because it cannot be rewritten as a second-degree polynomial.
The equation is not quadratic in form because the exponent of the lead term is not the square of the exponent of the middle term.

THIS IS THE BEST ANSWER ๐Ÿ‘‡

Option A is correct.

Step by step explanation:

We were given an equation:

(x + 5) ^ 2 + 4 (x + 5) + 12 = 0

Since the equation has a degree with the highest power 2, so it is squared

Therefore, option A is correct, that is, the quadratic equation is in the form because it can be rewritten as a quadratic equation with u represented by u = (x + 5).

Option B is wrong because it will not give polynomial to the fourth stage

Options C and D are incorrect because the equation is quadratic.
