What is a height of of an algebraic equation ? What is a height of of an algebraic equation ? @Mathematics
If you take a polynomial expression, say for example , the height of that equation is the absolute value of the coefficients, plus the degree of the equation minus 1 (I think there's a minus 1, but I'm not totally certain on that), so this equation would have a height of 5+2+3+1+(4-1)=14.
