Generate polynomial of specified degree


Hello,

Sorry if this may seem a silly question, but I readed the Mathematica
help and found no references.

Is there any function that can generate a polynomial of a given degree?

e.g.

For degree 1, f[x] would return a x + b
For degree 2, f[x] would return a x^2 + b x + c (quadratic equation)
For degree 3, f[x] would return a x^3 + b x^2 + c x + d (quadratic equation)

Thanks,
