$2x^{-3}-2x^{2}+3$

Decide whether the function is a polynomial function, If so, states its degree, type, and leading coefficient.

well, I presume it is a polynomial since it the sum of powers in the variable x. Its degree is 2 since that is highest power, but I don't know its type, since it is not quadratic or cubic. and has a vertical asymptote. and of course the leading coefficient is 2

couldn't find the answer in the book?
