degree 1 and leading coefficient is -6

why Jazzy? You've got to explain better than that, otherwise the student doesn't get much from being here.

The degree of a polynomial is the highest exponent of all the terms of the polynomial. In this case, we only have two terms, the constant 2 and the term, -6y.

\[-6y=-6y^1\]

That is where the one comes from and since it is the term with the highest exponent, the degree of the polynomial is just that exponent, 1.

Now what about 2. What is the exponent of it's variable? Well...

\[y^0 = 1 => 2=2y^0\]

So the exponent of the term "2" is actually 0, which is less than 1, and therefore NOT the degree of the polynomial.

the exponent of the term "2" is degree one which equals itself, a zero degree would result in the equivalent value of 1
