    degree 1 means the exponent on x is 1. Which term is that?

    there's nothing to solve. you're just picking a number out from the expression. |dw:1435260115956:dw|

    The other ones you can just look. for degree 1 and degree 0 the exponents are understood and not written |dw:1435260252604:dw|

    so which one of your terms has degree 1, meaning exponent 1?

    |dw:1435260825513:dw| can you tell how many different terms are in the expression?

    There are no steps. They're asking you to apply a definition. They're asking you for the coefficient of a 1st degree term. I posted a picture with the degree of each term, and I've posted another with how you pick out the degree and coefficient. You're not really saying what you don't understand, so I don't know what I need to explain better.

    4x^2 is the first term in your problem. The coefficient is 4 and the degree is 2. 3x^9 is the second term. The coefficient is 3 and the degree is 9. All you're doing is naming the part of each term

    so the answer is 3
