The degree of a polynomial is the same as the highest exponent of the variable present. Here are some polynomials and their degrees: 5x^3 + 4x^2 10 is degree 3 20x^5  14 is degree 5 12x3 is degree 1 x^7 is degree 7 5643x^3 + x^4 is degree 4

in what way....I need it to equal some value e.g x = 0, then y = 0 if y = 1 x = 1, y = 8 then x = 2 x = 3 y = 27

Quadratic equations do not have a degree greater than two; rather, they have a degree of two. The way to determine the degree of a polynomial is by examining all the exponents. Find the biggest exponent. That's the degree. Suppose the biggest exponent in a polynomial was 6; then, the degree is 6. Here's a polynomial with a degree greater than two: \[x ^{5} + 3y ^{4}  2k ^{3} + 10h ^{2}\]

Sorry, forgot to add that the degree of the equation I gave you is five, because it is the greatest exponent.
