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.
