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
