What is a degree of Polynomial ?
the largest exponent
could you give me an example ?
whatever the highest exponent is in a single term of the polynomial, for example, in 3x^2 + 2x + 1, there are 3 terms, 2x^2, 2x, and 1. 2 is the degree because it is the highest exponent. But also when there are multiple exponents in the same term, you must add them together: 2x^2y^3 + 5x
2x^3 + 6x^2, the degree would be 3 because the largest exponent is 3
the degree is 5 because in the same term, there is an exponent of two, and an exponent of 3
but if we have 3^2x^2 + 5x, the degree is just two because we only use exponents of variables, since 3^2 could just be written as 9
Thank- you for explaining ! :)
