    you take the set of variables in a term and add up their exponents, the one withthe highest value is the degree of the poly

    for example; spose a term is: \[2xy^3z^4\] the degree of this term is 1+3+4 = 8 do that to each term, and the one with the highest score wins

    example: x2 + x + 3? Just use the 'formula' for finding the degree of a polynomial. ie--look for the value of the largest exponent the answer is 2 since the first term is squared
