    Answer:

    Leading coefficient of the polynomial f(x) is 1

    Step-by-step explanation:a_1

    When we have the polynomial of form a_1 x^n + a_2 x^{n-1} +....a_n, then the leading term is the term that has the highest degree of x, here it is n. So the leading term is a_1 x^n. Now, the leading coefficient is a_1.

    Now when we look at the question, we will see that, the leading term is x^4 and thus the coefficient of this term is 1, so the leading coefficient is 1 here.
