General form of polynomial problem?

The general form of a polynomial in x is anxn + an-1xn-1 + an-2xn-2 + ... + a2x2 + a1x + a0 Given n = 5, which of the following polynomials satisfies the condition ak = k +1, for k = 0 to k = 5? choices: A. 5x^5 + 4x^4 + 3x^3 + 3x^2 + x + 1 B. 6x^5 + 5x^4 + 4x^3 + 3x^2 + 2x + 1 C. x^5 + x^4 + x^3 + x^2 + x +... show more The general form of a polynomial in x is
anxn + an-1xn-1 + an-2xn-2 + ... + a2x2 + a1x + a0
