st: testing overall quadratic and cubic trends

Subject   st: testing overall quadratic and cubic trends

Dear All,
I used orthogonal polynomial terms of time to test a cubic trend of y over
time(five waves). The individual coefficients of the three orthogonal
polynomials are significant. But to test the overall cubic trend, do i
need to test H0: b1+2*b2*t+3*b3*t^2=0? If so, how i conduct this test?
Thanks a lot.
