I just need help with B and C
welshfella
  • welshfella
there are 3 terms so its a tri - something
anonymous
  • anonymous
trinomial
welshfella
  • welshfella
right
welshfella
  • welshfella
and the degree is the highest exponent
anonymous
  • anonymous
Is it 8?
welshfella
  • welshfella
in a particular term for example 6pq has degree 2 2p5q = degree 6
anonymous
  • anonymous
do I add up the degrees?
welshfella
  • welshfella
No not 8 look at each variable and add up the exponents
welshfella
  • welshfella
5q is only 1 degree
welshfella
  • welshfella
because its q^1
welshfella
  • welshfella
ignore the numbers before the variables

  • anonymous
So it would be eight because p^2=2 and q=1 and p^3=3 right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I miss counted I actually got nine.
welshfella
  • welshfella
No - you don't add up the exponents in all the terms you find the term which has the highest count of exponents Thats the degree
anonymous
  • anonymous
So 7p^3q
welshfella
  • welshfella
for example the trinomial x^2y + y^2 + y has degree 3 because x^2 y has 2+1 = 3 exponents
welshfella
  • welshfella
yes 7p^3 q has highest degree 4
anonymous
  • anonymous
Thanks!
welshfella
  • welshfella
so the answer to C is 4
welshfella
  • welshfella
yw
welshfella
  • welshfella
so in descending order its 7p^3q -10p^2q – 5q
