#### Powerdisp

-- Option variable: powerdisp Default value: `false`

When `powerdisp` is `true`, a sum is displayed with its terms in order of increasing power. Thus a polynomial is displayed as a truncated power series, with the constant term first and the highest power last.

By default, terms of a sum are displayed in order of decreasing power.

```(%o1)                                true
(%i2) ```
