    The degree refers to the power to which a number is raise. So if a number is, say, x^3, it's raise to the third degree. If the number is x^5, it's raise to the fifth degree In the case of your polynomial, the degree of a polynomial is teh greatest number to which a number is raise which is 3 in yoru case. Thuys, your polynomial is a third degree polynomial.

    A constant in a polynomial has a degree of 0. For example, in teh polynomial x^2+x+4, the degree of the last term is 0.

    Take each term and the power to whihc it is raise is the degree. In teh case of the last term, which is a constant, the degree is 0.

    The degree of teh entire polynomial is the highest power to which a term is raised.
