    The degree of the polynomial is going to be highest degree of the terms of the polynomial. For example rst has degree (1+1+1)=3 (since each of the exponents there are 1) can you find the degree of r^2s^2?

    hint: just add the exponents as I did for the example I gave.

    the degree of rst is (1+1+1)=3 the degree of r^2s^2 is (2+2)=? (this shouldn't compute to 12)

    can you figure out the degree of r^3s^2 ?

    the degree of rst is 3 the degree of r^2s^2 is 4 the degree of r^3s^2 is 5 the degree of your polynomial will be the highest of those numbers
